Greetings from Church of Peace 02/04/16

Greetings from Church of Peace!

Feel like your life's out of balance? This week's Scripture stories are insightful for us as we try to establish a healthy pace for living. Come on Sunday to be illuminated! We will celebrate Holy Communion.

Following the service there will be a congregational meeting to vote on the plans for the new addition. In the past few days, some adaptations have been made (an additional bathroom added, for example) at the request of the congregation. To fulfill zoning regulations, a few other changes have been necessary. Members of the Building Committee will be available before worship in the narthex to show you the new drawings.

Sunday School convenes this week at the YMCA. If your child attends worship, adults will be available to walk them safely to class. If you drop them off, please drop them at the Y's front (west) door. If you'd like to wait for your child, you are welcomed to wait in the Y's lobby. When class is over at 11:00, you can pick up your child at the front door of the Y.

Saturday we will be moving the food pantry into Gammert Hall and preparing the Upper Room to become the church offices during the remodel. If you can help, come to the church at 8:00 a.m. And bring a friend!

Next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. Come to have your faith renewed as we begin our Lenten journey. The service will start at 7:00 p.m. Holy Communion will be celebrated.

That's the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: I pray for patience and wisdom today, so that I may treat others the way you treat me. I pray for a kind heart and a generous spirit so that I may reflect your goodness. Help me to live in your image. Amen.
