Lenten Greetings from Church of Peace 03/09/16

Tonight we'll light the Lenten candle of forgiveness and we'll focus on that topic in the Scriptures. Join us at 7:00 for this faith-building service.

Change can be difficult or refreshing. Come on Sunday and hear what the prophet Isaiah preaches about newness of life as a gift from God. Little Grace Ann Klapperich will be baptized. The service begins at 8:45 a.m.

You didn't miss your opportunity to help! This Saturday is our final work day as we get ready for the demolition project. We've got lots to do so please join the happy group of workers, beginning at 8:00 a.m.

Let's play! Sunday you'll have a chance to have some fun during social hour. We've set aside the game pieces for shuffleboard and everyone who wants to can try their hand at it in the now-empty Koehler Hall.

If you see fire trucks parked in our parking lot in the next week, don't be alarmed. The Fire Department is using our soon-to-be-demolished education wing for search and rescue practice. They won't damage anything and we'll be helping our community in a new way.

There is an up-to-date display in the narthex showing the progress of the Building to Serve project. You can check there any time for the construction news.

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead on Saturday night when you go to bed. It's spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time.

That's the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: In this season of melting, unfolding, and revealing, I pray, O God, that you will reveal in me a new depth of compassion and a renewed willingness to serve. You have loved me so very much, now show me the way to live my whole life as an expression of the new life you have asked me to share. Make me new in this season, in Christ's name I pray. Amen.
