          PASTOR'S MESSAGE AND HERITAGE HAPPENINGS FOR JANUARY 13


 

 If you were to ask a Baptist, a Catholic, and a Presbyterian the meaning of baptism, you would get three different answers.  (This in no joke!) The sacrament of baptism (and not all Christian faiths consider it a sacrament) is of great interest and confusion in the church today.  So many questions come up about baptism:  What did Jesus’ baptism mean for him and how does that relate to our individual baptisms today?  Does our salvation depend on baptism?  Would it be better to wait until children can choose baptism for themselves? 

 

This Sunday is the Baptism of the Lord, the day we remember Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan and the gift of baptism given to us.  Let’s go deep into the water this Sunday and discover the meaning and purpose of this holy sacrament for our lives and how it calls us to live each day. 

 

Getting wet with you,

 

Pastor Karen

IT’S BIRTHDAY SUNDAY time to celebrate all of the birthdays in January.  For anyone having a birthday this month, please bring a treat to share during fellowship time. 

 

MANNY TRIBUNA turns 98 on January 15th and has not been able to worship with us the past nine months.  Please send Manny a birthday greeting and let him know his church family is thinking of him.  Manuel Tribuna, 16246 N. 45th Drive, Glendale, AZ  85306

 

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING will be held on January 20th at the 9:30 a.m. service for the election of church officers, terms of call for the pastor and praising God for all the blessings throughout 2018.

 

A  NEW MEMBER CLASS will be held Sunday, January 20th following worship in the Pastor’s study.  All those interested in learning more about Heritage Church and the PC(USA) are welcome.  Elders will receive those desiring to be members into our church family.

PER CAPITA is the first envelope in your offering box. Per Capita is a set amount of money (apportionment) per member that congregations pay to the larger Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for their Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly operating budgets.   Your contribution to Per Capita helps Heritage to pay it’s per capita apportionment of $5,365.00 in 2019. This year per capita is $36.25 for each member. 

 

CHARITABLE TAX CREDIT contribution forms for HABITAT FOR HUMANITY are on the table in the narthex. You no longer need to itemize your charitable contributions to be eligible and the credit reduces your overall Arizona state income tax liability.  Married couples can contribute up to $800 and single taxpayers up to $400.  Send your check with the form or write “Heritage Presbyterian Church” in the memo line so your contribution goes toward our next build with the Presbyterian Coalition.
