Greetings from Church of Peace!

This Sunday the Lakeland Singers will fill our lovely sanctuary with their wonderful songs.  In order to make room in the service for more anthems by the Lakeland Singers, there will be no sermon. Our Sonshine Singers will be joining the Lakeland Singers for one song. Holy Communion will be celebrated. Worship begins at 8:45 a.m. 

Tonight our NEW Worship picks up where it left off at the onset of Lent: Thursday gatherings (6:30 p.m.) in the Upper Room to share our faith journeys and grow in understanding of God's Word.  Tonight we will celebrate Holy Communion.  You will find this service refreshing and faith-building.

Victor Abitz had knee surgery yesterday and will be hospitalized for a few days.  Please pray that Victor's healing will be speedy and complete. Please also remember the families of Roger Wolf (whose funeral was yesterday) and Eldon Wohler (who is at the end of his earthly life) when you pray.

Sunday School resumes this Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

On April 30th, we will be hosting a turkey dinner at Church of Peace. The menu includes "all the fixings" - even homemade pie. Tickets are on sale now at the church office and in the narthex on Sundays.  Carry outs will be available for those who do not wish to eat at the church. If you can help by baking a pie or working at the dinner, you will find sign-up sheets on the coatroom bulletin board.  Plan to attend and to bring some friends!

That's the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O God, in this season of spring, there are signs all around me of your power to bring life out of death and hope out of despair.  Please let this truth sink deep into my heart so that I can live a life, not of fear, but of joy. Bless Victor Abitz with your healing presence and bring heavenly comfort to all who mourn, especially the families of Roger Wolf and Eldon Wohler.  I pray in the name of the Risen Christ.  Amen.
