Greetings from Church of Peace 04-18-13

Greetings on this soggy day from Church of Peace. 

Bombings in Boston, explosions in Texas, murders and accidents here in Fond du Lac – what is a Christian to think about these things?  Does God make them happen? Sunday’s Scripture readings and sermon will address these important questions.  The Chapel Choir has a spirited anthem to share. Worship begins at 8:45 a.m.

Tonight we will gather at 6:30 for NEW Worship in the Upper Room of Gammert Hall, even if we have to swim to get here J

Please remember in your prayers: Pat Klebs who is in the hospital, Delores Hanson who has entered hospice care, and Jeff Zwicky whose mother’s funeral will be held on Friday. 

It is only a dozen days until the Turkey Dinner.  Please stop at the church office or in the narthex after worship to purchase your tickets or to sign up to help.  This is going to be a fun and delicious day as we work together to support our building improvement fund.  Remember: take-outs will be available.

This weekend our mission trip team will be working at the Fond du Lac dog show, assisting the judges, cleaning up after the dogs, and hosting the food booth.  If you stop in to the show, be sure to cheer on the workers in the lime green shirts.

At Golden Fellowship next Tuesday, the Fond du Lac City arborist, Brian Weed, will be here to answer your questions about trees.  The meeting begins at 11:00 with lunch to follow.  All interested adults are welcomed to attend.

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 compassion, we pray that you will pour out your comfort on all who struggle or mourn today, both near and far.  We remember before you those who are sick, especially Pat Klebs and Delores Hanson, and those who grieve, especially the Zwicky family. Grant patience to those for whom the rainy weather is challenging and fill us all with the sunshine of your peace. We pray these things in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
