The church office will be closed on Wednesday, January 1, in observance of New Year’s Day.
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have
brought us in safety to this new year: Preserve us with your
mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome
by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of
your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP p. 100 (adapted)
