Greetings from Church of Peace - November 17, 2011

Greetings from Church of Peace!

What does it mean for our day-to-day lives that Christ reigns over all creation?  We will think about this together on Sunday.  We will also remember and give thanks for those members of our congregation who have died during the past year.  The Chapel Choir will sing. 

On next Wednesday night, Thanksgiving Eve, we will gather to give thanks at 7:00 p.m.  Join us for this lovely and meaningful service which includes Holy Communion served in the pews and a prayer journey.  The Youth Choir will sing!

Tonight’s Mid-Week Faith Boost begins a discussion of Pastor Jim’s novel, Sheboygan County Chronicle.  Even if you haven’t read the first chapter, join us for an energetic conversation. We’ll begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Upper Room.

Remember that on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, you have the honor of participating in Steve Stepp’s ordination.  It will begin at 1:00 p.m. in the sanctuary.

We’ve had a couple of people in the hospital: Harold Kryzyanowski and Del Luttenberger have both been released to their homes.  Milton Scott is now at The Woodlands.  Lorraine Thill is now in hospice care.  Please remember these people when you pray. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O God, I await an awareness of your Spirit with eagerness.  I pray that you will enter my life in a new way today, renewing me so I may live with purpose and enthusiasm and courage.  Bless with your healing love all who are sick, especially Harold Kryzyanowski, Del Luttenberger, Milton Scott, and Lorraine Thill.  I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
