Greetings from Church of Peace on this Ash Wednesday!
Yes, it is a bit nippy out there. But that won’t stop us hearty Church of Peace Christians from gathering at 7:00 for our Ash Wednesday communion service. It will be a lovely service with slides of gorgeous sunsets, peaceful evening hymns, and a sermon written to touch your heart and enliven your faith. Two confirmands will bless our service by lighting the Lenten candle.
Tomorrow night’s Bible Study will focus on Ecclesiastes 3 and 4 – To everything there is a time….. The study begins at 6:30 in Gammert Hall. If you attend, you’ll be so glad that you did.
Sunday’s service will be the first Sunday in Lent. Worship will begin at 8:45 a.m.
Three people are hospitalized from our church family: Theresa Timm, Rose Randall, and Don Kremer. Janet Norenberg remains a patient at the Hospice Home of Hope. The funeral for Corliss Christie, John’s wife, will be tomorrow evening. Please remember these people when you pray.
Have you tried out the “new Oscar’s” (The Green Dragon) yet? You have an opportunity this Sunday night. We’ll meet there at 5:00 p.m. for a buy-your-own dinner. What a nice way to get to know members of your church family and enjoy a delicious meal at the same time. You can sign up on the coatroom bulletin board.
It is time to let us know if you plan to go on the Golden Fellowship tour and luncheon at La Clare Farms next Tuesday. Please call the church office (921-8215) if you haven’t signed up yet.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church – tonight and Sunday! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: As I enter this Lenten season, O God, I pray for the courage to examine my life honestly. Show me how to live more faithfully in the ways of Jesus. I pray for your serenity-bringing presence to be felt by Rose Randall, Don Kremer, Theresa Timm, Janet Norenberg, and the Christie family. Thank you, God. Amen.
