Greetings from Church of Peace, home of inspiring worship, friendly people, significant help for the impoverished, and a terrific bazaar! Aren’t you glad you are a part of it?
Sunday is All Saints’ Sunday. With great joy and reverence we will be honoring those from our church family who died this year. The Chapel Choir will sing. Holy Communion will be celebrated. Our first Witnessing Steward of the season will be speaking; it is Barb Zahn, who is perhaps better known as Lucy’s mom. Join us at 8:45 for a service which promises to leave us all feeling renewed and full of zeal.
Tonight’s NEW Worship in the Upper Room will also feature Holy Communion. It begins at 6:30 p.m.
The November Messenger is available in the church narthex and on line (www.uccchurchofpeace.org).
Steve Oestreich was hospitalized and has returned home. Please remember him when you pray. Please also remember the families of Phyllis Funk and Ruth DeTroye, both of whom died in the last few days.
Saturday is the Fall Work Day. There’s raking to be done as well as other chores. We would be very grateful for YOUR help. Come any time after 8:00 a.m.
Saturday is also a Shawl Ministry meeting. We’ll be choosing shawls for the Cancer Center as well as blessing lots of new ones. Bring your stitchery and join us at 9:30 a.m.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: My goal for today, O God, is to be so filled with your love that I shine with compassion in every word I say and everything I do. Please help me to achieve this. I pray that you will fill the lives of not only Steve Oestreich but also the families of Phyllis Funk and Ruth DeTroye with your healing love. Thank you! Amen.
Ushers this Sunday: Carol and Gary Krueger, Dick Kunasch, Anne Streeter, and Nicole Schendel.
