Greetings from Church of Peace 10-20-16

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Remember the song about the “wee little man” who sat in the tree? The story of Zacchaeus is the focus of this Sunday’s Scripture reading and sermon. Join us for this hour of renewal and spiritual invigoration. We’ll begin at 8:45 a.m.

This week’s construction news: all exterior doors are now installed, brickwork continues, and narthex sheetrock started yesterday. The new bathroom and water fountain are fully functional.

The confirmation retreat is this Friday night and Saturday. Please pray for our youth and their leaders as they grow in faith together.

Regretfully, we have had to cancel the Fall Festival Dinner. We have returned by mail all checks that we received. If you paid in cash, please get your refund by calling the church office (921-8215) or talk to Pastor Jenny on Sunday.

October 30th is the Sunday closest to All Saints’ Day. On that day we will honor those of our congregation who have died during the past year.

That’s the news from Church of Peace!

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

A prayer for today: Thank you, God, for this day with its promises of many blessings. I pray that you will open the eyes of my heart to the ways you touch my life with kindness today. Show me how I can reflect your love to everyone I meet. Bless our youth and their leaders on the confirmation retreat that they may grow in faith, love, and friendship. Amen.
