January and Beyond: Preaching Themes for Worship

January is occasionally a month of regret for some, while for others January is a month of new beginnings. Some regret that they have not dealt with everything they wanted to deal with in 2011. Others are thrilled that they get the opportunity to begin anew in 2012. Whatever your stance about 2011/2012, worship at First United Methodist Church of Arlington is a good place to be during January and February.

Our worship (and sermon) series will focus on how we “follow the leader—Jesus.”  As such, we will examine what it means to be a follower of Jesus as we learn from the master teacher and Rabbi.

Our principal biblical texts will come from the Gospel of Mark (with a dash of John). Below is the list of texts and titles for worship in January/February 2012. Read, study and pray before each worship service and see how God will bless you.

January 8        Follow Jesus to Baptism             Mark 1:4-11
January 15      Follow Jesus to Discovery          John 1:43-51
January 22      Follow Jesus to New Identity      Mark 1:14-20
January 29      Follow Jesus to Urgency             Mark 1:21-28
February 5      Follow Jesus to Wholeness         Mark 1:29-39
February 12    Follow Jesus to Defiance            Mark 1:40-45
February 19    Follow Jesus to Transformation   Mark 9:2-9

A special treat is in store as Dr. Zan Holmes with be with us in the 8:15 and 11:00 AM sanctuary services on January 15.
