Greetings from Church of Peace - July 28, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace,

Breaking News:  A day camp at Pilgrim Center Camp for all Church of Peace Sunday School children has been scheduled for Thursday, August 25th.  Children aged 4 years old - 8th grade are invited to board the bus at our church, then spend the day swimming, crafting, playing, learning, and eating at our Pilgrim Center camp. We’ll return home, tired and happy, after supper. Parents, watch your mailbox for more information. 

The feeding of the 5,000 is the Scripture story for Sunday, a story which has a particularly heartening message for people in tough economic times.  Little Masen Holmes will be baptized.  Annie Hackbarth will provide special music. 

Esther Hassman is a patient at St. Agnes Hospital.  Please remember Esther when you pray.

Our Church of Peace softball team plays its final pre-tournament game on Monday night at Woodworth (north field) at 7:00 p.m.  Come cheer for our team.  Bring a lawn chair. 

The Messenger for August will be mailed early next week. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today:  Don’t let the challenges of today overwhelm me, O God.  Open my life to receive your gifts of wisdom and peace. Remind me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Thank you.  I pray that Esther Hassman will be blessed by your healing power.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.
