Greetings from Church of Peace 01/16/14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

How do you think our congregation is doing as we seek to serve Christ together?  What progress have we made as we’ve traveled together the last few years?  What is God calling us to do next?  These are some of the questions that our Scripture passages for Sunday ask us to ponder.  The service at 8:45 will be blessed by the music of the Chapel Choir.

Tonight Andy Griffith will delight us with his wisdom which flows from our faith.  At 6:30 join us for the NEW Worship which will meet in Gammert Hall.

Steve O’Krueg has been hospitalized and expects to go home today.  Pat Pratt has become a resident of Hospice Home of Hope.  Please pray that God’s tender healing love will be real in their lives.

This Sunday at 10:15 a.m. interested people are invited to come to the choir room for a conversation with the Church Council about the 2014 budget.  Copies of the budget are available in the narthex (or reply to this email if you’d like Jackie to email you a copy).

Sunday, January 26th, the Annual Meeting of the congregation will be held at 10:15 in the sanctuary.  You are encouraged to attend to learn more about what goes on at Church of Peace and to help make decisions for the future.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Holy Friend, thank you for your faithfulness to me.  Remind me that you walk closely with me.  Help me to trust ever more deeply in your tender embrace.  Keep me on the straight and narrow way that leads to joy and satisfaction.  Bless Steve O’Krueg and Pat Pratt with whatever it is that will help them to feel your compassionate touch.  Amen.

Ushers this week:  Ray Beilke, Brenda Roehl, Dave Schultz, Rob Giese, Dawn Sabel.
