Greetings from Church of Peace 11-17-16

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Who’s in charge here? We are tempted to ask this question whenever things go wrong – in nature, in society, in our own lives. Sunday’s service celebrates the Reign of Christ. We will think together about what it means that God’s power is over all.

We know of no one who is hospitalized at this time.

Next Wednesday night, please join us for a Thanksgiving Eve service at 7:00 p.m. It will be a lovely, quiet service of gratitude. A prayer journey and pew communion will be featured. You will be glad you came (and so will God!).

Construction news: This week the aroma of fresh paint wafted through our work area from the interior of the new addition. The asphalt was laid in the parking lot; the stripes go on today. The back parking lot will continue to be one-way driving. There will be handicapped parking (now angle parking) in that lot. The first spot will become a garden since the city does not allow it to be used for parking – too close to the sidewalk.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

See you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim

A prayer for today: O God of wisdom and kindness, bless me with whatever gifts I need to proceed faithfully through my day today. Show me how to praise you by living in the manner of Jesus. Amen.
