Greetings from Church of Peace - November 9, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace!  We hope this finds you dry and warm. 

Sunday is Consecration Sunday.  This means (1) an opportunity to show our gratitude to God for all our many blessings, (2) inspiration from a new voice (Rev. Ann Wahlers joins us in worship leadership), and (3) really good food in a decorated Gammert Hall afterwards. In addition, the Stewardship Ministry Team has prepared a video featuring people from Church of Peace serving God in a variety of ways. This will be shown following worship during the social hour. Join us at 8:45 a.m. for this joyful service and stay for the treats (watch for your picture in the slide show, too).  

Need a visual reminder of summer’s beauty?  Come to Mid Week Faith Boost this evening. We will be viewing a presentation of Jim’s photos from northern Minnesota and from our garden.  It starts at 6:30 p.m. You can also pick up a copy of Sheboygan County Chronicle, Pastor Jim’s novel. We will be discussing it for the next few weeks.

Milton Scott is recovering in the hospital. Please remember him when you pray.

Golden Fellowship meets Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. We’ll have a program on preventing stokes and then share a delicious lunch.  Everyone will be welcomed.

We have an opportunity to participate in an uncommon and holy event on Saturday, November 26th at 1:00 p.m. when Steve Stepp is ordained to the Christian ministry in our sanctuary.  We strongly encourage members of the congregation to take part in this service.  A social hour will follow.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

Prayer for today: As the chilly winter-like winds blow outside today, I pray, O God, that you will accept my gratitude for my warm home and my Spirit-warmed heart.  I ask your blessing upon those who are cold in body, mind, or spirit today.  Bless our congregation as we rededicate ourselves to you on this Consecration Sunday.  Heal Milton Scott with your  gentle power.  I pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
