Greetings from Church of Peace 02-13-14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

This Sunday we’ll reaffirm the importance of keeping our commitments to God and to one another. As a part of the service, we will honor those couples who have been married for twenty-five years and longer.  The choir will sing a snappy new song.  There will be a prayer journey.  Join us at 8:45 Sunday morning for a time of refreshment and grace.

Tonight’s NEW worship begins at 6:30 in the Youth Room.  We’ll chuckle and grow in faith together, led by the gentle guidance of Andy Griffith.

We met our goal! Over 1100 cans and boxes of food and toiletries were collected in the past week for the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Thank you! Many lives will be blessed in the days to come by your generous gifts.

On Tuesday night, we convened the new Church Council for the year.  Please remember to pray for the Council as they lead our congregation.  Newly-elected officers are: President Victor Abitz, Vice-President Brenda Hackbarth, Secretary Renee Kiefer, Treasurer Karen Babler, and Custodian Jim Hackbarth.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Promise-Keeping God, I lean upon you  day by day. Knowing that you will always care for me gives me courage and hope.  I pray that you will remind me of the promises I have made and give me the strength to keep them faithfully, not only the ones I have made to you, but also the ones I have made to other people. Bless our congregation and its leadership; show us how to bring healing and hope to one another, to the neighborhood, and to the world, all in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
