Greetings from Church of Peace - April 19, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

The littlest Sunday School kids are singing in worship this Sunday and, boy, do they sing this one with gusto! Joining us in worship leadership will be the Rev. Dave Moyer, the Wisconsin Conference President of the UCC, who asked to come and share with the re-enlivened Church of Peace community.  Alek Giese will be baptized.

Diner’s Club at Blanke’s Lake Aire Supper Club will begin at 5:30 on this Sunday evening.  Sign up on the narthex bulletin board so we make sure to save a chair for you.

We have one person in the hospital: Peggy Laehn is a patient.  Please pray for her returning strength and health.  Elaine Hamberger and Marie Michalowske are in hospice care and nearing the end of their lives.  Please remember them in prayer as well.

Mid-Week Faith Boost resumes tonight with Bible study as a conversational focus.  Join us for this time of spiritual and emotional renewal.

Have you thought of stopping in to a Shawl Ministry meeting, just to say “hi” and see if you’d be interested?  They meet this Saturday morning at 9:30 in the Upper Room and would love to greet you.

Be on the lookout: the flocks of flamingos are coming to your neighborhood soon.  If they land in your yard, please give a generous donation. Thanks! Our youth and their leaders will be busy working at the Fond du Lac dog show this weekend.  If you attend, be sure to greet them.  They’ll be wearing their yellow shirts. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Source and spring of all our joy and hope, by your Spirit my spirit is fed.  Touch my life with your healing love this day and renew within me all that is beautiful and good.  Give me the courage and faith to reach out in love to the people who need my help.  I pray for Peggy Laehn, Elaine Hamberger, and Marie Michalowske.  May each one feel your nearness and experience your grace.  I pray in the name of the One who brings new life to every day. Amen.
