Greetings from Church of Peace!
What makes this coming Sunday special? Most people will answer “It is Mother’s Day,” and they would be right. It is also Shepherd Sunday, the day when we Christians remember the tender protective care that our Heavenly Shepherd gives to us. We’ll be combining these two themes in our service on Sunday. The Chapel Choir has prepared a special anthem. There will be a prayer journey, a new hymn by Pastor Jim, gorgeous pictures on the screen, and a visit from a first-century shepherd. You will be warmly welcomed. The service begins at 8:45 a.m.
Please remember that our Thursday night services are once a month, the first Thursday. So there is no worship service tonight.
Carla Behnke had surgery earlier this week and expects to be released from the hospital today. Please pray that Carla will have a quick and complete recovery.
Parents, please make sure your child is in Sunday School this Sunday so s/he can rehearse for Sunday, May 18th when the children sing with the Chapel Choir. They can sing at home with the CD; the song is “Hush!”.
There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board for Golden Fellowship’s birding program (May 20th), the trip to the Harley Museum/Milwaukee Domes (June 7th), and the Family Rafting Trip on June 13th. You can also register for any of them by replying to this email or by calling the church (921-8215).
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: I know, O God, that you are always beside and within me as I journey through life. Help me to feel your presence today. Bless me with wisdom as I make decisions. Give me words of kindness to speak. Show me someone I can help in Jesus’ name. I pray that Carla Behnke will know your healing power in her life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Ushers for Sunday: Karen Babler, Deb Opperman, Cindy Duffy, Rebecca Opperman-Pluim, and Megan Schendel.
