Greetings from Church of Peace 05-16-13

Greetings from Church of Peace!

RED!  That will be the color of the day on Sunday as we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.  A mass choir of the Chapel Choir, SonShine Singers, and all the Sunday School children will sing.  Nine fine young men and women will be confirmed.  The sermon will be presented as a chancel drama.  There will be plenty of room for the whole church family as we celebrate together, so join us at 8:45.  What a glorious service it will be!

NEW Worship will begin at 6:30 this evening in the Upper Room of Gammert Hall.  We’ll be growing in faith together as we let a parable of Jesus inspire and direct our lives.

Please remember the family of Arthur Stahmann when you pray; his funeral was held yesterday.

Have you signed up for the Golden Fellowship trip to Holy Hill on Tuesday?  You can still do so (even if you aren’t “golden”) by calling the church office (921-8215) today or tomorrow.  The cost is $10.00 for the bus. Lunch is “Dutch treat.”

Our first softball game is Monday at Evans Field at 6:30 p.m.  Show up to sign up.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: It is easy to give thanks on such a beautiful day as today, O God. Please do not let my thoughts of gratitude be the only way I express my appreciation to you for all my blessings.  Instead, open the eyes of my heart to ways that I can thank you by helping others.  I pray for heavenly comfort to surround all who are sick or sad, especially the family of Arthur Stahmann. I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
