Greetings from Church of Peace 09-17-15

Greetings from Church of Peace!

“Welcome to our church family!” That’s what we’ll be saying this Sunday as we receive new people into our membership.  The Scriptures for the day focus on welcoming the children.  The service will begin at 8:45.

Following worship, many things are going on here at Church of Peace: Sunday School at 10:00 a.m., a conversation with the Building Committee about the proposed plan (at 10:00 in the Choir Room), and – of course – Social Hour.  There will also be sign-up for the picture directory and for October activities like the rummage/bake sale and the Fall Festival.

A funeral for Carol Dehnel will be held this morning at 11:00 here in our sanctuary with a luncheon to follow in Gammert Hall. Please remember Carol’s family when you pray.

A special thanks to Larry and Deb Conger for the fun hay-ride at their home last Saturday night. (There was a bulletin misprint indicating the hayride was coming up this Saturday.)

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: O God, when the challenges of life seem overwhelming, remind me that Jesus said, “You will have troubles but I will be with you.” Help me to lean on your Divine Presence today and to see your hand of blessing at work in my life.  Bless the family of Carol Dehnel with your comfort and peace.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
