Sermon Text: John 2:1-11
1: On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; 2: Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. 3: When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine." 4: And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." 5: His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6: Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7: Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8: He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it. 9: When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom 10: and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now." 11: This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
A Message From Your Pastor:
Hello Saints of St. Paul’s,
As you are fully aware, the COVID virus and its variances are still very much with us. In fact, there is a surge of contaminations in the Pawleys Island are. Some of you have asked about church and worship. We will continue holding in public worship. Members must decide whether to attend the in-house worship or join worship online. However, the Mission and Ministry teams that were scheduled to meet this month will not meet. We will attempt to reschedule for late February. We will not have the covered dish meal on January 31st. We will still have one service at 10:00 a.m. If church Sunday School is continued those attending are urged to practice safe distancing, wear masks, wash hands and do so in a well ventilated room.
Please do all in your power to keep yourself safe and for the safety of others. If you have not already, I urge you to get the vaccine and or the booster.
