Greetings from Church of Peace 05-02-13

Greetings from Church of Peace!

One of the hallmarks of the United Church of Christ is the “extravagant welcome” we extend to all.  This certainly was true of our congregation at the turkey dinner on Tuesday.  Our guests enjoyed a delicious meal and eager-to-please service.  Thanks to all who planned, worked, and ate.  It was a success in every way.

This Sunday’s worship service will be an invitation to let the healing power and love of God flow through us.  We will share in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  The Chapel Choir will provide special music.  Join us at 8:45 a.m. for a time of spiritual refreshment and renewal.

Tonight’s New Worship will also feature the sacrament of Holy Communion.  We will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Upper Room of Gammert Hall.

Today at 10:15 a.m. Pastor Jenny and Jeanette Hinn will be leading worship at All About Life Nursing Home.

Delores Emmer is a patient at St. Agnes Hospital.  Please remember her in prayer.

Saturday morning, grab a rake and come to church.  We’ll be gathering at 8:00 a.m. to get our church yard in tip-top shape for the spring and summer seasons.  Let’s make our gardens and lawn reflect our dedication to our church.

This Sunday and Monday we’ll be busy setting up for the Ladies’ Aid rummage sale which will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Bring your stuff in Sunday or Monday and stick around to help if you can.  We’ll also need baked goods for the ever-popular bake sale. Come back on Tuesday and shop!

Now is the time to sign up for the church softball team.  Anyone over age 16 is eligible.  Call the church office or sign up in the coatroom.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

We’ll see you in church!

A prayer for today: I have so much for which to be thankful, O God of Bounteous Blessings. Show me how to express my thanks to you in kind words and compassionate actions toward others of your children. Bless Delores Emmer with a sense of your nearness and peace.  Amen.
