Maundy Thursday Greetings

Greetings from Church of Peace on this Maundy Thursday,

We gather at 7:00 p.m. tonight for a worship service featuring the costumed commemoration of the Last Supper, acted out by 17 people from our congregation.  Pew communion will be served.

Tomorrow is Good Friday.  Join us at 7:00 for this solemn service of remembering the last day of Jesus’ life.  The service will be deeply inspiring without being over-sentimental or gory.

Easter Sunday services are at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. with the Chapel Choir and the Sunday School children singing at each one. The sanctuary will be festive, the songs uplifting, the sermon strengthening.  Join us for this joyful hour!

Saturday morning the youth will be gathering at 9:00 a.m. to decorate and bake for the Alleluia! Social Hour between services on Easter.  Love to bake and nobody to eat it?  We’d be delighted to have your creations to share with the congregation on Easter. 

Susan Oestreich is in the hospital in Madison. Jim Mitchell and Carol Dehnel have transferred to care centers. Tim Puddy is in hospice care at 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: On this Maundy Thursday, O God, I pray that Christians everywhere will learn from Jesus’ example of servanthood and faithfulness.  Bless us all as we worship together over the coming days. Strengthen your church to serve you well.  I pray that your healing power will be with all who are sick or sad, especially Susan Oestreich, Jim Mitchell, Carol Dehnel, and Tim Puddy. May all of us know the triumph of Easter. Amen.
