Greetings from Church of Peace 06-12-14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

On Sunday, the sermon will focus on “Famous Last Words,” in particular the last words of Jesus and the Apostle Paul.  There will be a special blessing for our retiring organist, Helene Schrankler, and our retiring choir director, Lee Behnke.  Please join us as we honor and thank these women who have been blessings to our congregation for many years. The service will begin at 8:45.  It will be followed by a special social hour hosted by the choir.

We ask that you remember three families when you pray, families that are grieving because of recent deaths of loved ones – the families of Church of Peace members Eleanore Stamurs and Ruth Fox, and also Gary Babler’ s father, Glenn Babler.

Tomorrow a group of our church family members will leave at 9:00 to go rafting on the Pestigo River.

Saturday is the Spring Clean-Up of the outside of the church building.  We are eager to have our property be a shining star in the neighborhood.  Please come help rake, plant, and clean.  We’ll begin at 8:00 a.m. and be done by noon.  Coffee, juice, and donuts will be served.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today (from a prayer by William Barclay): O God, help me to live today well.  Help me to cause as little trouble and to give as much help as possible.  May I share the burdens and joys of all who share my life. I ask your blessing of consolation upon all who grieve, especially the families of Eleanore Stamurs, Ruth Fox, and Glenn Babler.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
