Greetings from Church of Peace - April 28, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Happy Eastertide to you!  We continue our celebration of the resurrection of Christ on Sunday with another joyful service.  This Sunday our confirmands will reflect with us on some of the Biblical friends of Jesus. The Chapel Choir will sing.  Because Holy Communion was celebrated during three services last week, it will not be a part of this Sunday’s worship service.  The service will begin at 8:45 a.m.

The Women Retreaters will meet at the church tomorrow evening at 6:00. We look forward to a renewing time together at Pilgrim Center.

The Ladies Aid rummage sale will be held all day Tuesday and on Wednesday morning of this coming week.  We can use your no-longer-needed stuff and your baked goods (our most prolific baker is on the sick list). Set-up help on Sunday after worship and on Monday would be deeply appreciated.  Thank you to the Ladies Aid for this worthwhile project which helps our neighbors, promotes re-using, and raises money for Church of Peace ministries. 

Long-time member George Weber is near the end of his earthly journey, residing now at Hospice Home of Hope.  Please remember George and his family in your prayers.

There will be no Mid-Week Faith Boost tonight.  A week from tonight a new series will begin which features archeology in the Holy Land, teaching us about the origin of the Bible and about life in Bible times.  Plan to be a part of this study series on Thursday evenings in May.

If you have signed up for the Chicago trip and haven’t yet paid, please get the $27.00 to Jackie soon.  Thank you.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

We’ll see you in church!  Pastors Jenny and Jim

A prayer for today: My heart is still singing Easter praises to you, O God.  What power and love you have demonstrated in the resurrection of Christ!  I see that same power at work in my life and I thank you.  I would be honored to be an instrument of your love in the lives of others; show me how.  I ask your blessings of comfort and peace upon George Weber and his family during this difficult time.  In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
