Greetings from Church of Peace!
We’re excited about Sunday! First, there will be worship at 8:45 a.m. with the baptism of the Pickart twins and the blessing of the Faith Formation Wing. Then, at 10:00 a.m. Sunday School begins for the season, meeting in the sanctuary and then adjourning to their new home. There will be joy in the air. Join us!
Growth in faith isn’t just for children. We’re offering a Bible study for adults during Sunday School this year. Our first series will be on Bad Girls of the Bible. Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00 in the Multipurpose Room. No Biblical knowledge required!
We’re having two work times to tidy up the Faith Formation Wing and get the furniture in place for Sunday School. We’ll be working tonight (Thursday) from 6:30 p.m. for a couple of hours and then again on Saturday morning beginning at 8:30. We especially need strong people to carry tables and chairs. But if you can dust, you’re qualified and needed! Please come help get this area ready for our little ones.
Our youth will be in the church kitchen on Saturday, the 16th, to make applesauce for the Fall Festival. Does anyone have an electric food mill that we can use? Let Pastor Jenny know if we can borrow yours. That’s a lot of applesauce to crank by hand!
A week from Sunday (on September 17th) we’ll be gathering at Lakeside Park at 11:15 for a bike ride and potluck picnic. Last year we all had a great time. Bring the kids and join us! Please sign up either on the bulletin board or by calling the church office at 921-8215.
That’s the news from Church of Peace!
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: Thank you, O God, for calling me to be your disciple. Show me how to serve you today. I ask your special blessing upon our church family as we prepare for the new Sunday School season. Please grant wisdom for our teachers and open hearts for each of our young ones. May each one feel welcomed and loved. Amen.
