Thursday Greetings on Wednesday 9-18-13

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Has anyone ever been unfair to you or broken your heart? We can all answer “yes” to that question.  Our Scripture lesson for Sunday shows us how to overcome anger and bitterness so we can move on positively with life.  Join us at 8:45 a.m. for what promises to be a helpful and inspirational service. The Chapel Choir will sing.

NEW Worship will be held tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. in the Upper Room of Gammert Hall. 

There may be a couple of seats left for the Chicago trip on Saturday.  Call the church right away if you are interested (921-8215).  If you’ve already signed up for the trip, be at the church at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday.

Elsie Strelow has been transferred to Hospice Home of Hope.  Please remember her when you pray. We extend our sympathy to Church of Peace members Bonnie Percy and Roxanne Birschbach on the death of their mother Elvera Luhn, who was also a member of our congregation. Jenny’s dad, David Dawson, is having an aortic value replaced Thursday (tomorrow) in Wausau.  Our family appreciates your prayers for his speedy recovery.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O God, sometimes it is difficult to hear your voice amid the everyday noise and distractions of my life.  When I am tempted to feel alone or overwhelmed, remind me to pause to remember your nearness and power.  Shine your healing light upon all who suffer from illness or grief, especially Elsie Strelow and the family of Elvera Luhn.  I pray these things in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
