"Journey of the Magi"

Sunday's Gospel: Matthew 2:1-12

This Sunday, we will be celebrating the Epiphany, when the Magi followed the Star of Wonder and were guided to that Perfect Light. Who were the Magi and how does their story apply to our lives today?
Come join us on Sunday as we explore together the Journey of the Magi.

Save-the-Date: Sunday, January 27, 2019
Please join us for our first Congregational Meeting of the year on Sunday, January 27 at 11:30 a.m. in the Friendship Hall.  We will be getting updates from our Church Council and committees, as well as hearing from our Facilities Team.  All church members are strongly encouraged to attend. 
On January 19, 2019, thousands will come together across the U.S. to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington.

In a show of solidarity with the national anniversary march, an official “sister” march will be taking place in Saugatuck/Douglas on January 19, beginning at Beery Field in Douglas and marching over the bridge into Saugatuck, ending at Lucy’s Little Kitchen. 

Once again this year, we will begin the day with an intention-setting service at Douglas UCC at 10 a.m., then walk together to Beery Field tand begin marching at 11 a.m.. We hope you will join us.
Snow Closings - Should we ever need to cancel a Sunday service due to snow this winter, we will post an announcement on the scroll of WZZM, Channel 13. We will also post closings on our church's Facebook page:
We are seeking volunteers who are willing to shovel snow outside the church on Sunday mornings this winter.  If you can help, please sign the sheet in the Friendship Hall. Thanks!
The next meeting of the True North Women’s Group will take place on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 10 a.m. at 88 Spring Street. Newcomers are always welcome.
Men’s Support Group will meet Monday, January 7, from 7-9 p.m. at 88 Spring St.  We will reconstitute the smaller groups we break into so this is a perfect time to join us!
