Greetings from Church of Peace - May 17, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

What a glorious morning Sunday will be!  The anthem will be provided by a chorus made up of the Chapel Choir, the Sonshine Singers, and our Sunday School kids.  Seven students will be confirmed.  Please join us for this festive hour.  There will be plenty of room for you!

This Saturday, May 19th, we’ll gather about 8:00 a.m. and work in the church yard for a few hours, sprucing it up for the spring and summer season.  If you’d rather work inside, there is work to be done there as well.  We’ll have a good time together. Rumor has it that anyone still here when the work is done can go up on top of the steeple and have a look around. There will be donuts!

Mid-Week Faith Boost meets tonight at 6:30 to sing, pray, and discuss the Scripture reading for this coming Sunday.

Joann Krenn died Tuesday evening.  Please remember her family in your prayers. We know of no one who is hospitalized.

Looking ahead:

            Tuesday, May 29th               Trip to Railroad Museum and Botanical Gardens
            June 10-16                           Mission Trip to Joplin
            Sunday, June 24th               Diner’s Club at Sebastian’s Supper Club
            Thursday, August 9th         Neighborhood Picnic at Church of Peace
            Friday, August 17th             Day Camp at Pilgrim Center

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Ever-Creating God, I stand in wonder and joy before your creation.  The spring flowers, colorful birds, and newly-leaved trees testify to your beauty and power.  May my life also testify to your beauty and power as I treat everyone I meet today with kindness and respect.  I pray for your comforting touch in the lives of all who grieve today, especially the family of Joann Krenn. Speak to me of your will and your loving ways.  Amen.
