Today, Souper Bowl collection for tackling hunger and poverty .

We are collecting ingredients for chili, so we need cans of kidney beans, or other type of beans, (you can also bring dried beans) and cans of tomatoes—diced, crushed.

Fourth Sunday after THE EPIPHANY 

February 1, 2015, 11am  


“Jesus and his disciples went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught. They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God." But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" – Mark 1:21-25
