Greetings from Church of Peace August 1, 2013

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Our greetings are a day early this week because our internet service will be down on Thursday morning.

We’re back from a delightful vacation and are eager to see our church family again.  Join us tomorrow (Thursday) night at 6:30 for NEW worship (in the youth room) and/or Sunday at 8:45 a.m. for the service in the sanctuary.  Holy Communion will be shared at each service.

Have you signed your children/grandchildren up for the Church Family Day Camp?  It will be held on Wednesday, August 14th at Pilgrim Center.  The cost of $10.00 per family includes the bus ride, lunch, and supper.  Each child can bring one friend (the friend is $5.00).  Just reply to this email if you want to sign up a child and/or yourself.  We’ll get the permission slip to you in plenty of time.

We’re hosting Loaves and Fishes on Wednesday, August 21st.  We need volunteers to help cook, serve, and clean up.  We also need donations of food and money. 

Looking ahead:
          Wednesday, August 14th      Day Camp
          Friday, August 23rd              German Choir Concert
          Monday, September 2nd        Great America Trip
          Sunday, September 8th         Sunday School Begins
Saturday, September 21st       Day Trip to Chicago
          Fri.-Sat., September 27-28,   Confirmation Retreat

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: What a relief it is, O God, to know that you walk with me through this day!  I need your wisdom and strength as I face decisions, large and small.  Thank you for guiding me.  Show me ways to be a more faithful disciple with each passing day.  Amen.
