Greetings from Church of Peace August 22, 2013



Greetings from Church of Peace!

Love stories will be featured in Sunday’s sermon – not the romantic kind but deep love, none the less.  Kendal Cleora Burns will be baptized. Lindsey Reiter will play a piano solo.  Join us at 8:45 for this meaningful service.

Tonight the NEW Worship service will take place at 6:30 in the Youth Room.

Do you like to cut and sew?  A team of quilters will be working on the quilt for this year’s bazaar and would love your help and company.  Come to the Choir Room tonight at 6:30 to participate.  

Tomorrow night – Friday evening at 7:00 to be precise -- a young people’s choir from Germany will grace our sanctuary with a concert.  Come enjoy their music (in German and English) and then converse with them over some DQ ice cream cake afterwards.

Jeanette Hinn is currently a patient at St. Agnes Hospital.  Please remember her when you pray. Delores Hanson and Charles Smith died this week; please ask for God’s comfort for their families as well.

Sunday School and confirmation information is going to be mailed today.  Watch for it in your mailbox if you have children between the ages of 4 and 13.  If you have neighbors or relatives who would like to become a part of our Sunday School, have them call the church office (921-8215)for registration information.

The September issue of the Messenger will be available in the elevator lobby and narthex on Sunday and on line by Friday noon: (www.uccchurchofpeace.org).

That’s the news from Church of Peace. 

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

A prayer for today: What a friend I have in you, O God, a friend I can depend on for guidance and encouragement and strength.  Please help me to feel your presence with me and to follow your holy nudgings in my life.  I pray that you will bless Jeanette Hinn with healing and all who grieve with the comfort of heavenly peace.  Amen.
