No one is in the hospital at this time.   Rev. Jerry Schrankler was in the hospital last week.  We extend our Christian sympathy to Pat Smith whose sister died last week.  Please remember these people when you pray.

On behalf of the whole staff, we would like to express our gratitude to the congregation for your prayers, good wishes, and gifts over the Advent and Christmas seasons.  It is a hectic time for all of the Church of Peace staff as we work to make your Christmas celebration holy and joy-filled. Your kindnesses at this time are appreciated and enjoyed.  Thank you!

That’s the news from Church of Peace!

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

A prayer for today: As the New Year begins, O God, I pray for this year to be a time when my heart is open to joy, my mind to new, more faithful ideas, and my body to your health-giving power.  May 2014 be a year in which our world leaders focus on peace, not on war.  Bless Jerry Schrankler and Pat Smith and her family with your loving presence.  Thank you!  Amen.
