The Rev. Mark Dickinson, Settle Memorial senior pastor

Sermon Outline: Download a printable copy here.

“In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  From the very beginning the Word was with God.  Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him.  The Word was the source of life, and this life brought light to people.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.  God sent his messenger, a man named John, who came to tell people about the light, so that all should hear the message and believe.  He himself was not the light; he came to tell about the light.  This was the real light—the light that comes into the world and shines on all people.  The Word was in the world, and though God made the world through him, yet the world did not recognize him.  He came to his own country, but his own people did not receive him.  Some, however, did receive him and believed in him; so, he gave them the right to become God's children.  They did not become God's children by natural means, that is, by being born as the children of a human father; God himself was their Father.  The Word became a human and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father's only Son.” - John 1:1-14

Children: Children of all ages are always welcome to attend worship service with their family. Settle also provides a nursery for ages 0-3 starting at the 9 a.m. Sunday School hour and running through the conclusion of both worship services. For children preschool-Grade 5, Settle offers Sunday School at 9 a.m. in the Education Building, and for preschool-Grade 2, we also offer children's church, where children sit with their parents at the beginning of worship and exit worship as a group after our children's message. Drop off/pickup for all children's activities are in the Education Building.
