Holy Week Greetings from Church of Peace

Greetings from Church of Peace for this Holy Week!

Here are the highlights:

*Maundy Thursday’s service tomorrow is at 7:00 p.m. It features a reenactment of the Last Supper with Jesus and the disciples around the table. All of us will share with them in the Lord’s Supper. This is deeply inspirational; you are encouraged to invite a friend to join you in this worship experience.

*Good Friday’s service is also at 7:00 p.m. A chancel drama of four people has been prepared for this night. Pastor Jim will provide special music. Join us for this solemn remembrance of the death of Jesus.

*Easter services are at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. These festive services will be complete with a trumpeter and special music – the choir at 8:00 and Inge Adelmeyer at 10:00. The front of our sanctuary will be lovely in its garden finery. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Between services a social hour will be hosted by the middle-school youth.

Our thanks to the many people of Church of Peace who are working together to provide these varied and meaningful worship experiences.

When you pray, please remember Randy Stafford and Malita Patchett who are in the hospital. Funeral services for Bettye Baker will be held tomorrow. May God’s peace rest upon her family and friends.

Please sign up for Golden Fellowship. The program will feature Tom Strauss’ duck carvings and the story of Norbert’s courageous escape from Cuba on a raft. The date is Tuesday, April 25th.

You can bring in rummage for the Ladies of Peace sale any morning. The sale will be Friday and Saturday, April 28th and 29th. Help in setting up during the week of the sale will be most appreciated.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: As I travel through this Holy Week with Jesus, I pray, O God, that you will fill me with a new love for my Savior. Show me how to express that love in compassion and kindness toward all people. Bless Randy Stafford, Malita Patchett, and the family of Bettye Baker with your healing peace. And give to all who participate in the Holy Week services deep meaning and a sense of your nearness and love. Amen.
