BRATTLEBORO -- First United Methodist Church worship service will be held Sunday, Feb. 9, at 10 a.m. Ron Francis will read scripture from 1 Corinthians 2:1-16 in which Paul explains the Spirit not in terms of miracle and power as the Corinthians understand, but as that which brings to life again that same Christ of the cross.

The Rev. Cheryl Meachen will preach a sermon entitled, "The Mind of Christ," exploring the lens of Christ through which we interpret and the standard of Christ against which we measure. The choir will sing "Walk Worthy."
