Greetings from Church of Peace!

This is “Red Sunday” at Church of Peace.  Our sanctuary will be resplendent with red and fire, symbols of the Pentecost story that we celebrate.  You are encouraged to wear red, orange, or yellow; it adds to the festive feeling.  There will be a Pentecost prayer journey.  We have invited our high school graduates to be with us so we can honor them.  The service begins at 8:45.

Monday at 6:00 p.m. we will gather at McDermott Park North for a tail gate party. Bring your own dishes, drinks, and main dish (grill if you want to).  Please bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share.  We’ll be cheering on the Church of Peace softball team which will play at 7:00.

Ray and Juli Beilke, Art Conklin, and Pastors Jim and Jenny will be attending the Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Conference of the UCC in Green Lake tomorrow and Saturday. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O Loving God who has given me life, I pray for one more thing:  I pray that today my heart will be open to your Holy Spirit and that my life may reflect its fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.  Bless the Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Conference of the UCC that the Christians gathered together there might be strengthened in faith and bring back good news to share with our congregations.  Amen.
