For Sunday, January 31, 2021

Sunday School at 8:45 AM
Worship at 10:00 AM
Nursery care is offered. 
On-line worship is available on Facebook and You Tube
We have open seating in our sanctuary, balcony and Fellowship Hall.  Please sit only where bulletins are placed.  We ask everyone to consider sitting in the Fellowship Hall once per month for the worship service.
Daniel 4 sounds familiar:  King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream that only Daniel can interpret.  But this dream is about the king’s immediate future to teach him a lesson about pride.  This should remind us all to be humble and hopeful, knowing that “the Most High God rules the kingdom of men”—and that’s true today.

Worth a Look

Some Christians have raised ethical questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccines:  Do these vaccines rely on fetal cells from aborted babies, and if so, would that mean a Christian should refuse the vaccine?  In short, yes, some do use fetal cells in production and testing, but others use them only in testing.  While this is deeply disheartening, it doesn’t immediately answer the question of the ethics of receiving the vaccine.  Here are some articles and podcasts that will help you to think through this issue.  Most of the following sources conclude that it is not wrong for a Christian to receive these vaccines, but the last one takes the opposite view.  Still confused?  Pastor Bruce would be happy to talk with you further about this issue.
