Lenten Greetings from Church of Peace!
Tonight is the final service in our Lenten series this year. Come join us at 7:00 p.m. for this time of rest and spiritual renewal. We will light the Lenten candles of perseverance and servanthood. We will dedicate our One Great Hour of Sharing offering. Please give generously to this important ministry which supports emergency relief and on-going development projects in the poorest areas of the world.
Interested in helping with the Gammert Hall reconstruction? Come tomorrow (Thursday) night at 6:30 p.m. for a tour. You can sign up to help with a variety of projects. By the way, they’ve roughed in the rooms – they are spacious places for our children to grow in faith.
