Greetings from Church of Peace

Greetings from Church of Peace,

“How beautiful!”  “It is gorgeous.”  This is what you will say when you enter the sanctuary on Sunday and see our altar adorned for Harvest Home Sunday. Fruits, vegetables and other produce will combine to proclaim God’s generous abundance. Join us at 8:45 a.m. Sunday for this festival of blessings. The youth choir will sing.

If you have produce, fall flowers, or home-canned goods to contribute to the Harvest Home display, please bring them to the church before Saturday morning. Write your name on them so you can have them back!

NEW Worship is tonight at 6:30 p.m.  We will gather to worship and learn together about the seeds which God sows in our hearts and lives.  We meet in the Upper Room.

Mary Lange is still hospitalized in Madison and expects to return to Fond du Lac soon for long-term rehab. Del Luttenberger died Tuesday evening. Please remember Mary Lange and the Luttenberger family when you pray.

HELP! The building committee wants to spruce up the narthex/lobby area before the bazaar.  They will be painting this Saturday morning beginning at 8:00. Can you help?  Even a couple of hours of your time would be a significant gift to the church.  Thank you!

Sunday afternoon is the CROP Walk.  We meet at 12:45 on Oven Island at Lakeside Park.  The walk will take about an hour.  It helps the hungry here and far away.  Sign-up sheets are available at the church.

There will be a hayride for the confirmands and senior highs this Sunday night.  Meet at the church at 5:45 to ride together to Milton Scott’s farm.  What fun you will have! The cost is $3.00.  You can bring a friend.  Permission slips are required for everyone.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Your heart is so beautiful, O God, to create all the loveliness which I see this autumn season.  Your heart is so generous, dear Lord, to share all of the abundant bounty which I receive.  Bless me as I try to show my gratitude by the way that I live today. Mary Lange and the Luttenberger family are in need of your healing touch; I know that you are with them in this difficult time. Thank you!  I pray these things with deep love and with gratitude.  Amen.
