Lenten Greetings from Church of Peace 02-25-15

Greetings from Church of Peace on this Lenten morning!

Tonight we begin our Lenten series on connecting faith with everyday life.  Our Scriptures deal with two challenges faced by every Christian – judging and gossiping.  Join us as we chuckle over Andy Griffith while we examine our own lives.  The service begins at 7:00 p.m.  The confirmands will light the Lenten candle of Humility.

Tomorrow night’s Bible Study on Ecclesiastes will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Gammert Hall.  The topic is “The Key to Life is Low Expectations” from chapters 4-6.  Newcomers will be welcomed heartily.

Sunday’s service continues the theme of last Sunday: the cross and the crown.  Just what does it mean to bear the cross in our time and place?  We’ll celebrate Holy Communion together.

Don Kremer remains in the hospital.  Janet Norenberg is at the Hospice Home of Hope.  Delores Pinkert has become a resident of the Lutheran Home. Please remember them when you pray.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: During this Lenten day, O God, may I turn to you over and over again – for guidance, for inspiration, for peace.  Let me live as Jesus would live. I pray for those who are sick, especially Don Kremer, Janet Norenberg, and Delores Pinkert.  May they each feel your healing presence.  Amen.
