Greetings from Church of Peace 01-17-13

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Join us for worship 8:45 a.m. Sunday to have your spirits lifted and your spiritual gifts strengthened. There will be lots of lively music and deeply prayerful moments.  The Chapel Choir will provide an anthem. Social hour will be hosted by the Visitation Ministers.

At 10:00, after you’ve had a chance to get a cup of coffee, you are invited to the choir room to a budget information session.  Members of the Council will be there to answer any questions about the proposed 2013 Budget which will be voted on at the Annual Meeting of the congregation which is on January 27th.  Copies of the budget and other documents for the Annual Meeting will be available in the narthex.

Tonight we will gather to worship at 6:30 in Gammert Hall’s Upper Room. 

Shirley Hanke is a patient at St. Agnes Hospital.  Please remember her when you pray.

Have you eaten a meal at the new Trinity Restaurant?  Sunday evening at 5:00 we will gather there to eat supper and enjoy one another’s company.  Sign up by calling the church office now (921-8215) or signing up on the bulletin board on Sunday.

Tuesday you are invited to a Cuban festival.  David and Diana Candlish will show slides of their recent trip to Cuba.  Our janitor, Norberto Gonzales, who emigrated from that country when he was nineteen, will share some reflections.  Jackie and Jenny are teaming up to provide some Cuban food for lunch (cross your fingers that it will turn out well!).  We’d love to see you there.  Please sign up by calling the church office now (921-8215) or signing up on the bulletin board on Sunday.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Thank you, God, for being ever-present in my life.  Help me remember that you are always here, eager to provide guidance and support. Show me ways to bring good news into the lives of others.  I am grateful for your healing power; bless Shirley Hanke as she recovers from surgery.  Thank you, God.  Amen.
