Gather at the river


On Epiphany (Jan. 6), the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land will celebrate Jesus’ baptism and the dedication of the first Lutheran church on a holy site: the Evangelical Lutheran Church at Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan. The site, mentioned in John 1:28, contains a sanctuary, parsonage and multipurpose hall. Guests will be invited for retreats. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan donated the land to the ELCJHL and six other Christian churches. To help support the site, send checks (payable to ELCA, with “ELCJHL Baptismal Site” on the memo line) to ELCA Global Mission, Attn: Finance, 10th Floor, 8765 W. Higgins Rd., Chicago, IL 60631.
