Greetings from Church of Peace - September 15, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace,

Fair is fair! Or is it?  Our Scripture reading for this Sunday’s reflection is a parable of Jesus which shows us a new way to determine fairness: God’s way.  Join us at 8:45.  The Chapel Choir will make their seasonal debut.  A prayer journey and spirit-touching hymns will grace our service as well.

Sunday School and Breakfast Club will meet at 10:00. 

Tonight, we continue our study of Rob Bell’s book as we gather for Mid-Week Faith Boost at 6:30.  We’ll be discussing Chapter One.

Do you enjoy natural beauty, lovely music, and an occasional chuckle?  Then come to the Golden Fellowship gathering on Tuesday at 11:00.  Pastor Jim has prepared a presentation of the magnificent sights of summer, in particular of the Boundary Waters Area (now on fire in northern Minnesota). Lunch will follow.

The Church Council will be serving Sunday’s Social Hour.

Don’t forget to mark the September 25th congregational meeting on your calendar.  It will begin at 10:15 a.m. Its purpose is to vote on changing the date of the Annual Meeting to January, vote on what percentage of the bazaar profits will go to the General Fund, and to discuss the current financial situation.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today:  Light of my soul, I need your strength and wisdom as I face the problems and duties of this day. Grant me a humble spirit which quickly comes to you in times of decision and action.  Show me the way to a meaningful and Christ-like life.  Thank you, God.  Amen.
