Greetings from Church of Peace - March 21, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace on this Lenten Wednesday!

Our Calvin and Hobbes Lenten series continues tonight at 7:00.  Tonight our attention will focus on God’s gift of the created order.  How are we to respond to the great beauty around us? How do issues regarding the environment impact Christian disciples? Come be renewed and refreshed by this service.

This Sunday the Sunday School children (4th-8th grades) will grace our worship with song.  The prophet Jeremiah calls us to open our hearts so God can work miracles within us.  Come worship at 8:45 a.m. on Sunday.

This is the last Sunday on which you can order flowers to adorn our church for the Easter service.

Sunday evening you are invited to enjoy the company of other church members as we dine together at Rolling Meadows Restaurant at 5:30 p.m. Please sign up on the bulletin board so we can alert the restaurant to the proper number of people to expect.  It will be a fun (and delicious!) time together.

The following Sunday is Palm Sunday.  Although it is the first Sunday of the month, we will not be having communion because the Lord’s Supper will be offered on Maundy Thursday and twice on Easter.

On Palm Sunday we will receive our One Great Hour of Sharing offering.  Please prayerfully consider a generous gift. 

We know of no one who is hospitalized at this time. 

The Messenger will be available on line by Friday noon and will be available in print form on Sunday.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Thank you for accompanying me on my journey today, O God. May I experience new life and new hope as we travel together.  I ask your blessing upon all who feel alone or afraid today.  May your Spirit comfort and sustain them.  Amen.
