Mark 1:4-11

Sermon Intro: My very first call to ordained ministry was serving as the associate pastor of the Congregational United Church of Christ in Algonquin, Illinois. That’s the one that’s on Washington Street just a couple of blocks from the Fox River. I know, kind of uncanny. Three years after my service began there the senior pastor that I was working with, Rev. Gary Miller, announced that he was accepting a call in Florida. When he left the Rev. Joe Dye came on as the intentional interim senior minister.
