Question to consider as preparing for Bible Study
How do the two stories in this reading (the wedding at Cana and Jesus in the temple) reinforce John's purpose in his Gospel (see John 20: 31)?  Why do you think John tells the story of cleansing the temple this early in his account?

Greetings Members and Friends of the Bainbridge Community United Church of Christ,

It's an exciting time here at Bainbridge Community UCC!  It has been a blessing to have Pastor Brian join us as our Designated Transitional Minister (DTM) and to meet his lovely family.  
In the past our church had Interim Pastors while the search continued for a Settled Pastor. An Interim was not able to be called as a Settled Pastor. A Designated Transitional Minister fulfills the regular duties of a pastor, in this case as a part time pastor, but can be hired as a Settled Pastor.  After a period of six months we as a congregation are able to do one of the following three items:
  1. Call Brian as our Settled Pastor,
  2. Renew him as a DTM for another 3 months, (this can be done up to two times) or
  3. We can choose to part ways.
At this time the Search Committee is on hiatus.  We are here as support for Pastor Brian thru the process of being our Designated Transitional Minister.  While Brian is with us, the Search is suspended to allow us and Brian time to forge a relationship.  I hope you are as excited as the Search Committee is to have Brian join us to see where God is leading us on our journey!
Lynn Kramer 
Search Committee Chair

Remember our home bound!

Please remember our church family who are housebound. 
If you can't visit, a phone call or card could be the the highlight of their day!
