Greetings from Church of Peace 08-21-14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Sunday’s service will feature a story sermon and lots of great music.  Join us at 8:45 as we consider God’s calling to follow Jesus as disciples.

We know of three people who are hospitalized: Leo Lefeber, Carol Moon, and Randy Stafford.  Please hold them in prayer. Two of our members have lost loved ones in death this week: Lois Abitz’ son, Jay, has died as has Jan Alf’s brother, Carl.  May God’s gift of comfort be with them.

Please sign up for an Awareness Meeting (Sundays, August 31, September 7,14, and 21 at 10:00 in the sanctuary).  These meetings will help explain why we are undertaking the Building to Serve Campaign.  This will be the perfect time to ask questions.  Call Jackie at 921-8215 to register.

Our Sunday School teachers will meet on Saturday at 9:00 in the Upper Room to go over plans for the new school year.  We have a new spirit of energy and a new curriculum.  Sunday School starts on September 7th.

That’s the news from Church of Peace!

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

A prayer for today: Your merciful love flows around me today, O God, as it does every day and for that I am grateful.  I pray I will live with an awareness of your nearness as the day’s hours progress. Keep me from feeling frazzled or frantic; fill me instead with a sense of well-being in your care.  I pray for your healing love to be manifest in the lives of Leo Lefeber, Carol Moon, and Randy Stafford.  I lift before you all who grieve, especially Lois Abitz and Jan Alf. These things I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
