THIS WEEK AT ABINGTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

January 20, 2019

This Sunday, January 20, we will pair an account of Jesus’ attendance at the wedding in Cana toward the beginning of the Gospel of John with a reading toward the end of that gospel account.  Our scripture readings for the day will be John 2:1-11 and John 19:16-30.  The sermon is entitled: Extravagance.  Worship services are at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Before we get to Sunday:

The Theological Book Club next meets on Saturday, January 19 at 8 a.m. in the pastor’s office to discuss Abusing Scripture by Manfred Brauch.

A memorial service for Gerald Yeager, one of our former members who moved out of town years ago, will be held in our sanctuary on Saturday, January 19 at 1 p.m. with a reception following.

Now, back to this Sunday:

Dr. Stephen Kim continues with leadership of the Bible Study class focusing on the Book of Jonah.  8:45 a.m. in Room 108.

Charlotte Dean will be leading Adult Forum – In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we will have a discussion based on clips form the 2014 movie, Selma. This historical drama focuses on the attempts of King and his followers to achieve, through non-violent protest, equal voting rights.  8:45 a.m. in the parlor.

Fancy Fellowship in the Parish Hall following the 10 a.m. worship service this Sunday.

Then Sunday afternoon, come to Music At Abington’s concert at 3 p.m. when a group called The Arcadian Trio presents a program entitled ‘Music Transcends’ which features composers who overcame extraordinary challenges to bring their music into being. Works by Shostakovich, Zemlinsky, and David Baker are brought to life through the talents of trio members violinist Igor Szwec, cellist Vivian Barton Dozor, and pianist Diane Goldsmith, along with visual images and commentary. The program features a world premiere based on African American spirituals, which is being written for the group by local composer Kile Smith. (Snow date: 1/21, 7pm)

On this Monday, the church office will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King’s Birthday.  But all APC members and friends are invited to come to the event we have been jointly planning with First Presbyterian Church, Olney, 5435 N. 3rd St., Philadelphia, where it will take place at 1 p.m.  The state senator for our area, Art Haywood, will be the primary speaker.  Our adult choir will join with the Olney choir for joint singing.  Our APC youth group will be in attendance.  There will be a documentary presentation (a portion of the PBS “Eyes on the Prize” documentary).  The program is expected to last 1 hour.  APC members and friends are asked to provide drinks for the reception following the service (originally, I indicated we were to provide food for the reception, but I have been told we are to provide drinks)!  If you want to car pool to the event, meet in our church parking lot by 12:15!

Looking Ahead: The whole congregation is invited to read Wonder by R.J. Palacio about an extraordinary boy with an extraordinary face who inspired a movement called ‘Choose Kind.’  Hardback copies of the book at available in the church office for $9 (list price is $16.99).  The book discussion for all ages, led by our children and youth, will be Friday, February 22 at 7 p.m.

Each year, APC pays an apportionment or per capita cost for each of our members to support staff at presbytery, synod, and general assembly levels.  We will pay $29.25 per member for this expense.  (My last week’s email blast was in error for the amount by 70 cents – I’d be glad to reimburse you if you already paid too much)!  If you are able to pay for what the church is required to pay on your behalf, we would welcome that.  Make your check to APC for $29.25 times the number of church members in your family.  Thank you!

Many know we have had heating problems in the C.E. building.  We believe that problem has now been fixed!  Thanks be to God!  But we are reminded to show care for those who have little or no heat during cold days and nights to show we have warm hearts.

Blessings!
