Greetings from Church of Peace 02-07-13

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Visions of people from the past and faces glowing with heavenly radiance highlight the Scripture readings for this Sunday.  Come join us as we open our hearts to be filled with light and hope.  The Chapel Choir will sing.

Like Sunday’s worship, tonight’s NEW worship features the story of the Transfiguration.  We’ll meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Upper Room.

This morning, Church of Peace will lead the communion service at All About Life Nursing Home at 10:15.  You’ll be warmly welcomed if you choose to join us there.

Last Sunday’s Souper Bowl food drive continues this week.  We need about 150 more items to meet our goal of 1000 boxes and cans of food.  Thank you!

Two people from our church family are hospitalized: John Stepp and Audrey Schaalma.  Please remember them when you pray.

On Sunday evening at 6:30, people interested in the Mission Trip will be meeting in Gammert Hall to make further plans and volunteer for fund-raising activities.  If you are interested in the trip this summer to Kentucky (June 15-22), please attend.

Next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. Communion will be served. Our Lenten services every Wednesday will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will focus on connecting our faith to every day life.  It is our hope that each one of us will be a more faithful disciple of Jesus at the end of Lent than we are at the beginning.  Join us as we grow in dedication and goodness this Lent.  These services are required for our confirmands.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today:  O God of Light and Hope, shine in my heart and through my life today.  Open my heart to those who need an encouraging word or a helping hand.  Give me a sense of purpose as I move through my day.  I pray for your healing touch to be upon all who are sick, especially Audrey Schaalma and John Stepp.  I pray remembering the One who shone with your light.  Amen.
