Greetings from Church of Peace -02-08-18

Greetings from Church of Peace!

This Sunday’s service features the celebration of Christian marriage. Couples married 25-68 years will be honored with a flower. We will install our Church Council and Stewardship Team members. The choir will sing. Join us for this hour of inspiration beginning at 8:45.

We know of no one who is hospitalized at this time, but we do ask you to hold the Oestreich family in your prayers. Mary’s mother died this week.

Starla Rebedew will be available in the narthex after worship to receive donations for “Feed My Starving Children,” an ecumenical event in which Church of Peace participates. Starla will have information about the day the food will be packed for distribution.

Coming up:

Next Wednesday, February 14th, is Ash Wednesday. We will gather for worship at 7:00 p.m. Altar communion will be offered. Begin your Lenten journey with this holy service.

The Family Formation Event will be held on Sunday, February 18th. The theme this month will be “Jesus Loves the Little Children.” It is for people of all ages and will be held from 10:00 a.m. through 11:30 a.m. Join us for this time of faith-building and fun.

The youth are heading to Kentucky for their mission trip this summer. You can support them by participating in the Chili Cook-Off on February 25th from 11:00-1:00. We are hoping our whole congregation will support the kids by eating with us that day. Do you make a pot of yummy chili that you could share? Sign up on the bulletin board. Thanks!

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: Bless me, O God, with wisdom and courage as I live this day for you. Show me how to follow in the steps of Jesus. Please shine your comforting light on the Oestreich family in their time of sorrow. Amen.
