Greetings from Church of Peace 10-09-14

Greetings from Church of Peace!

This Sunday is Harvest Home, the Sunday when we celebrate the fruits of the harvest and give thanks for all that God has provided. The sanctuary will be resplendent with the signs of the season.  The Chapel Choir will add their anthem to the celebration.  Meg Kiefer and Isabel Post will be our Witnessing Stewards.  Jazlyn Elizabeth Beau-Champ will be baptized. 

If you would be willing to contribute produce to the Harvest Home display, please bring it to the church before Saturday.  You may reclaim it after the service. Thank you!

Please remember the family of Jane Merten.  Jane died early this week.

The confirmation class will leave for their annual retreat on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and will return Saturday by 4:00 p.m.  This year’s theme is prayer.

Have you had your flu shot yet?  On Sunday, October 26th, we will be hosting a Sabbath Health Fair in Gammert Hall during Social Hour. Walgreen’s will be there to give flu shots (free if you have no insurance) and other health-related information will be available.  Stay tuned for more information.

The Building to Serve team members are busy making phone calls and visiting church members. Please make every effort to welcome them when they call you.  You’ll enjoy your conversation. 

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O God, Source of all that is beautiful and good, I thank you for taking such good care of me.  I have been blessed beyond measure and I am deeply grateful.  I pray that you will be able to see my gratitude reflected in the way that I live.  Please shine your light of comfort upon the family of Jane Merten. Please bless the confirmation retreat with faithfulness and growing friendships.  I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
