Greetings from Church of Peace - June 16, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Are you a church member or a disciple or both? Our Gospel lessons for Sunday’s worship service focus on this question.  Join us at 8:45 a.m. as we sing, pray, and learn together.  We’ll be offering a special prayer in honor of fathers as well. 
By the time most of you arrive for worship on Sunday, the mission trip trailers will be packed and ready to depart. During the service, we will bless the thirty-two people who will represent us as they dedicate the next week of their lives to helping people in the name of Christ. Then, after worship, we’ll send them on their way.

Mission trippers, watch your email box for final instructions and information. 

Congratulations to our Church of Peace softball team for their decisive victory last Monday.  Their next game is at 7:00 p.m. at Evans School this coming Monday.  Fans are always welcomed!

Next week, Pastor Jenny will be on the mission trip. Pastor Jim will remain here to “tend our flock.”  There will be no Bible study on Tuesday, but Shawl Ministry will meet at usual on Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace. 

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

A prayer for today: God,  you have called me to be your disciple and to do your work here on earth.  I come asking for your help so that I can be faithful to the tasks you set before me.  Fill my life with hope as I seek to be an agent of your compassionate love. As they make final preparations for their trip, I ask your blessing upon the mission trip team. May they feel your supportive presence and the safety of your strong arms as they travel, work, worship, and play together.  I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
