Greetings from Church of Peace - February 23, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Here’s some great news to brighten your day: the organ has been totally paid for!  “Thank you” to every person and family who donated to this fund during the past months.  Although one substantial gift at the end made this momentous announcement possible at this time, each gift made a difference as we made the organ truly our own. 

Sunday’s service will bring us more good news.  Using the story of the rainbow, we will examine our lives in the light of God’s covenant. The littlest Sunday School children will sing.  Bibles will be given to the 3rd graders. 

Tonight is the last meeting of the Mid-Week Faith Boost until after Easter. 

Youth, parents, and mission-trip adults: please attend the meeting on Sunday evening at 6:30 in Gammert Hall.

The March Messenger will be posted on line by the end of today and will be available in the narthex and elevator hallway as well.  

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

P.S.  For the rest of Lent, this greeting will come on Wednesday to remind everyone of the Lenten service that evening.

A prayer for today:  Eternal God, let this holy season of Lent become for me a time of self-examination, repentance, and inner strengthening.  Purify my heart to behold your will more clearly for my life.  Show me new opportunities to share your healing grace with those in need.  May being an active part of Church of Peace be a focus for me as I seek to become closer to you.  I pray remembering Jesus. Amen.
