Greetings from Church of Peace - March 7, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Tonight’s Lenten service is at 7:00 p.m. Join us for this time of spiritual cleansing and renewal as we consider a conversation between Calvin, Hobbes, and the Word of God.

Sunday’s service begins at its usual time: 8:45.  If you forget to set your clock ahead before you go to bed on Saturday night, you’ll arrive an hour late. We’ll be glad to see you whenever you arrive.  The Sonshine Singers have prepared an anthem with which to grace our worship. 

Last Sunday, the social hour tables were not laden with treats as they usually are; no one had signed up to host.  This week, the Stewardship Ministry Team has volunteered, so we will be enjoying our usual snacks.

Harold Kryzyanowski and Shirley Hanke are in the hospital.  Please ask for God’s healing presence to continue to be with them both.

Coming up:

Golden Fellowship gathers on Tuesday, March 20th for a “Spring Tonic” meeting.  Come watch Pastor Jim’s presentation of the delights that the new season will hold for us.  A lunch will follow.  You can sign up in the narthex or call the church office (921-8215).

The Diner’s Club is a new thing at Church of Peace.  We’ll be sharing a meal at a restaurant about once a month, just for the fun and friendship-building aspects of the time together.  Sunday, March 25th, we’ll gather at Rolling Meadows Restaurant at 5:30 to share a meal – each person will order and pay for his or her own supper.  Sign up in the narthex or call the church office (921-8215).   

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today:  Loving God, I need the strength and help of your Spirit as I face the duties, problems, and joys of this day.  Grant me a humble heart which comes to you in every temptation and trouble, keeping my calling as a disciple in the forefront of my mind.  Bless Harold Kryzyanowski and Shirley Hanke with a return to complete health and strength.  I pray these things knowing that you will answer my prayer with love.  Amen.
