Greetings from Church of Peace - February 16th, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Psalm 96 begins “Sing to the Lord a new song.” That is exactly what will be done in worship this Sunday.  The Lakeland Singers will be with us and will bless us with a variety of sacred music; you do not want to miss this chance to hear their lovely voices singing in praise.  Kaden Slavik will be baptized. 

Donna Blaine and Rev. Martin Koehler are hospitalized.  Please remember them in your prayers.   

Tonight’s Mid-Week Faith Boost will be a discussion of chapters 18-21 of Sheboygan County Chronicle.  We’ll begin at 6:30.

Following Sunday School on Sunday (at 11:00), a crew will assemble to clean the pew cushions.  If you’d like to lend a hand, your help will be appreciated.  A lunch will be provided. 

The Golden Fellowship invites everyone to play with trains on Tuesday morning.  Denny Smith and Pastor Jim will bring Lionel trains to operate and enjoy.  Join us for this time of fun (11:00) and for the lunch which will follow (noon).

This Wednesday Lent begins.  Our Ash Wednesday service will start at 7:00 p.m.  Holy Communion will be served.  Our Lenten theme this year is “Growing in Faithfulness” and will feature the comic strip of Calvin and Hobbes.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Loving God, wrap your arms around me today and keep me safe when times are difficult or when temptation calls my name.  Help me to use wisely the gifts you have given to me. Show me the path you would have me go.  I pray that your healing light will shine upon Donna Blaine and Rev. Koehler.  Amen.
