LITURGICAL COLOR: GREEN
The paraments – the cloths on the cross and pulpit – are now green signifying we are in a period of “ordinary time” in the church year. Ordinary Time is a period between major church seasons; the Season of Christmas ended and we are in ordinary time until the Season of Lent begins. During Ordinary Time we study Scripture texts that encourage us to mature in our daily expressions of faith so that we become more holy and whole persons.

HEALING SERVICE NEXT SUNDAY
SSUMC’s worship services on January 17 will take the form of a Healing Service.
Together we will offer praises and prayers to God as we anticipate and assemble for God’s work. Our services will include opportunity for healing prayer and anointing oil for persons that would like to and feel safe in receiving. Persons worshipping at home that would appreciate a pastoral visit to safely include healing prayer and anointing oil may schedule a visit by emailing Pastor Sarah via email@example.com.
Please join our church family in prayer as we prepare for this special time of worship and for God’s new and continued Kingdom work through South Shore United Methodist Church.
