Happy New Year from Church of Peace! It is our prayer that you will be richly blessed by God’s grace throughout the New Year.
This Sunday is Epiphany Sunday, the day each year when we celebrate the coming of the Magi to honor the infant Jesus. This year, Epiphany will have special meaning to us as we proclaim a modern day version of bringing gifts to the Christ Child – our total pledged amount for the Building to Serve Campaign. Holy Communion will be celebrated. Join us at 8:45 a.m.
Shirley Hanke is hospitalized, recovering from surgery. Please pray that God’s healing light will continue to shine upon her.
Next Sunday, January 11th, the Church Council will host a budget meeting for all interested members in the Choir Room at 10:15 a.m. The purpose of this meeting is to answer questions and get input about the 2015 budget which will be officially presented at the Annual Meeting on January 25th.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: Like the ancient wise men, I seek your guiding light, O God. Bless me with a deep sense of direction as I try to live faithfully. Don’t let me give up when life’s journey seems long or difficult. I pray that you will bless Shirley Hanke with returning health and strength. I pray these things in the name of Christ. Amen.
