Greetings from Church of Peace - May 10, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

TOMORROW – the all-church dance sponsored by the mission trippers.  Come have some fun and help us fund our trip.  There will be music for all ages, free popcorn and soda pop, and smiles galore.  The dance is from 6-10 p.m. on Friday night. Youth and children who are unaccompanied by an adult will need a permission slip (attached to this greeting).  The cost is $5.00 for youth and adults, $3.00 for those 12 and under.

Sunday is Mother’s Day or, as we call it in the church, the Festival of the Christian Home.  Our service will focus around the blessings and responsibilities of family life.  The Sonshine Singers will sing.  Kennedy and Liam Petersen will be baptized.

ATTENTION CHOIR MEMBERS: this Sunday there will be a rehearsal for the anthem on the 20th, a mass anthem of singers aged 4-???. Choir members, please be in the sanctuary at 10:00. 

Dorothy Eggers is in the hospital and Joann Krenn is nearing the end of her life at the Hospice Home of Hope.  Please remember these women in your prayers.

On Saturday, May 19th, there will be a “work morning” at the church.  If it is nice out, we will be working outside.  If it is raining, we will work inside.  Either way, our church property will be improved by these efforts.  Please help out from 8:00 – noon (or part of that time).  Interested adults can go up on top of the steeple at the end of the morning.

Please sign up a.s.a.p. if you plan to go on the Golden Fellowship–sponsored trip to the train museum and the Green Bay Botanical Gardens.  The trip is on Tuesday, May 29th.  The sign-up sheet is in the narthex.  The price is $20.00.

That’s the news from Church of Peace!

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

A prayer for today: What a beautiful day on which to sing your praises in my heart, O God! Thank you.  And thank you for many opportunities to bless others as you are blessing me.  Please make your comforting presence keenly aware to Dorothy Eggers and Joann Krenn during this difficult time.  I pray these things in your Spirit of Love, known in Jesus.  Amen.
