Thanksgiving Eve



Greetings from Church of Peace!

Happy Day-Before-Thanksgiving! Come tonight at 7:00 p.m. for a worship service designed to help us express our gratitude for all of our blessings.  The sanctuary will be lovely, the message heart-warming, and the Spirit present with us.  Plus the Worship Enhancement Team has prepared a gift for each worshipper.

There will be no NEW worship this Thursday because it is Thanksgiving Day.  We’ll resume next Thursday.

On Saturday at 9:00, the Council could use some help.  We have some yard work to finish up before winter strikes.  Could you come and work for a while?  Please bring a rake.

Sunday’s service will be a joyful celebration of the love and forgiveness offered by our compassionate God.  The Chapel Choir will sing.  We’ll gather at 8:45.

A member of our church family has died.  Robert Warner’s service will be held on Friday. Please pray that God’s comfort will be with his family.

Watch your mailbox for a copy of the proposed revisions to the Constitution of Church of Peace.  There will be a meeting on December 16th to vote on the proposed changes.

The December newsletter will be available in the narthex on Sunday and on the website later today.  While you are on the website (www.uccchurchofpeace.org), check out the newly-enhanced picture section.  Thanks to Halie Hackbarth for bringing this up-to-date.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: I have so much to be grateful for, O Generous One.  Thank you.  Bless all who gather tomorrow; turn their hearts toward you.  Please be with the family of Robert Warner as they mourn his death. May the spirit of gratitude remain in my heart not just during this holiday but always.  Amen.
