Greetings from Church of Peace November 15, 2012

Greetings from Church of Peace!

If you like children, you’ll love Sunday’s service.  The youngest Sunday School classes will sing and little Audyn Zupke will be baptized.  Our Scripture reading is about the end times (should we believe the Mayan calendar?). Be a part of a service that is not only full of joy but faith-building as well.

Tonight’s NEW worship will also focus on Jesus’ words about catastrophic events and the end of history.  Join us at 6:30 for this casual style worship that brings us closer to God.

Ken Thome is a patient at Froedtert Hospital and is expected to return home late this week.  Please pray that his return to health and strength will be swift and complete.

A week from today is Thanksgiving.  The evening before, on Wednesday, November 21st, we will be gathering at 7:00 p.m. to acknowledge God’s generosity in our lives. The service will feature Holy Communion as well as lovely slides on the screen.  Don’t miss this opportunity to fill your heart with gratitude and to express your thanks.

The Church Council has been busy revising the Church of Peace Constitution.  Watch your mailbox for a copy of the proposed revised document.  There will be a congregational meeting on Sunday, December 16th, to vote on the proposed changes.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

 A prayer for today: Use me today, O God.  Use me to bring cheer, to convey encouragement, to be an agent of goodness in the world.  Let your light shine through me.  Fill me with your peace as I face any challenges. I pray that your healing love will bring Ken Thome to health and strength soon and that all your children will have warm shelter on this chilly day.  Amen.
