Greetings from Church of Peace 05/01/14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Tonight we begin a series of first-Thursday-night worship.  We’ll meet in the sanctuary.  Holy Communion will be celebrated.  This will be traditional-style worship, an abbreviated form of a Sunday morning service. All members are welcomed, especially those for whom Sunday morning attendance is difficult. 

Sunday morning’s worship will also feature Holy Communion.  Liz Koechel will provide special music.  The confirmands will be introduced to us. The sermon will focus on the parable of the Wheat and the Weeds. Join us for what promises to be a very inspiring service.

The semi-annual Ladies’ Aid Rummage Sale will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please bring your donations of sale items on Sunday afternoon or Monday. Baked goods can come in on Monday. We appreciate your help which enables the Ladies’ Aid to continue their ministries in and beyond our church.  Thank you!

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today:  Today, O God, I pray for strength and wisdom.  I want to be a light in this world which so often is threatened by darkness. Don’t let my hopes be dashed or my faith be eroded by challenging situations or negative people. Instead, let me shine with the joyful light of Jesus.  I pray this in the name of the Risen Christ.  Amen.
