Greetings from Church of Peace - August 29, 2013



Greetings from Church of Peace!

We’ll be gathering this Sunday at 8:45 for Holy Communion, a prayer journey, a children’s service of blessing as they head off to school next week, and a sermon on the story of Jesus healing the bent woman. The pictures on the screen will add meaning to it all. It will be a refreshing, renewing service. Join us!

Tonight’s NEW worship will also feature Holy Communion.  We meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Youth Room.  You’ll be glad you came.

The church office will be closed on Monday in honor of Labor Day. 

This is the last Sunday before we resume our fall activities such as Sunday School, confirmation orientation, and choir rehearsals.  Check the on-line newsletter for dates and times: www.uccchurchofpeace.org.

Ushers this Sunday will be Brenda Roehl, Victor Abitz, Rebecca Pluim Opperman, Tina Gray, and Peter Peterson.

That’s the news from Church of Peace.

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

A prayer for today: As the last weekend of the summer season approaches, O God, I pause to thank you for all the blessings its months have brought. I am grateful for the memories made and the smiles shared.  May my celebrations this weekend include time to worship and praise you. As I celebrate Labor Day, remind me to pause and pray for those who cannot find employment and for those who are significantly underpaid for the work they do. May your vision of fairness be made real in our world today.  Amen.
