Greetings from Church of Peace!
On Sunday, we will dedicate our lovely new baby grand piano. Five musicians from our congregation will play at various points in the service. Come rejoice with us at 8:45 a.m.
It has been a hard week for many in our congregation. Three funerals are being held this week: Harold Kryzyanowski, Carol Schrank, and Delores Emmer. Please remember their families when you pray. Three members of our church family remain hospitalized: Matt Ewerdt, Ruth Loehrke, and Eugene Willis. Please pray for them as well.
The Church Council has accepted the resignation of our Chapel Choir Director, Lee Behnke. Lee will finish out the spring with us. We are saddened to see her go, but know she will be blessed in her new adventures. A celebration of her music ministry will be held this summer.
The Messenger for April will be on-line by Friday noon (www.uccchurchofpeace.org) and in the church narthex on Sunday.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: O God, what would I do if I did not know of your love, your healing power, and your gift of strength to all who ask? Please bless those who are sad with a sense of your nearness; heal their broken hearts. Be with the sick and hospitalized; shine your healing light into their lives. I pray that you will bless me with the gift of perseverance so I can press on toward the goal of a faithfully-lived life. Amen.
