Greetings from Church of Peace 06-11-15

Greetings from Church of Peace,

This week’s service features a humorous story from the Old Testament and two of Jesus’ short parables from the New Testament. It will be a pleasure to honor our graduates as a part of our worship. Join us at 8:45 for a time of spiritual renewal and rededication.

Immediately following the service on Sunday there will be a congregational meeting.  The Council has called this meeting to ask the membership to approve the hiring of Capelle Brothers and Diedrich to be the general contractors for our building project.  We will also be asked to pay Capelle Bros. and Diedrich $50,000 from the Building to Serve Fund for the drawing up of plans and other preparatory work for our new addition.

No one is hospitalized that we know of. 

We extend our Christian sympathy to the family of Beatrice Meixensperger whose funeral was held at the church yesterday.

This weekend the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ will be meeting in Green Lake.  Ray Beilke and the pastors will represent Church of Peace.

That’s the news from Church of Peace. 

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

A prayer for today: I come to you with my heart ready to be filled with your love and grace, O God.  Guide my steps today so that I may walk in the ways of Christ in all my interactions. Show me how to be an instrument of your peace. Please bless all who grieve, especially the family of Beatrice Meixensperger. Bless our congregation as we seek to go faithfully into the future.  Amen.
