Greetings from Church of Peace 09/10/15



Greetings from Church of Peace!

Sunday School starts this Sunday.  Registration will begin at 9:45 a.m. and the classes begin at 10:00.  We’re looking forward to a year of learning, growing in faith, and fun with our teachers and children.  If you have a child or grandchild who is aged 4-13, we’ve got a place for them.

Sunday’s worship will be blessed by the team of Schrankler and Schrankler as Rev. Jerry will preach and Helene will play the organ.  There will be a skit about the Church Pictorial Directory. Worship begins here at 8:45 a.m.

On Sunday morning, Pastors Jim and Jenny will be representing Church of Peace at a Northeast Association gathering in Oshkosh where a commissioned hymn by Pastor Jim will be premiered during the worship service.

Please remember Carol Dehnel and her family in your prayers as Carol spends her last days of earthly life at the Hospice Home of Hope.

Saturday evening there will be a Church Family Fun Night at Larry and Deb Conger’s home.  Beginning at 5:00 with pizza, this evening will include a hayride and bonfire. You can sign up by calling the church office if you want to join in the fun.

It’s our turn to serve Loaves and Fishes on Monday night.  Show up between 4:00 and 6:30 on Monday afternoon to help.  It is heart-warming work, a meaningful way to share the bounty of Christ with our neighbors.

Monday evening at 6:30, Adult Bible Study will begin a new season.  Meet in the Youth Room for an hour of learning and sharing.  The Gospel of Mark is our topic.  

Last, but definitely not least, it is time to make an appointment to have your picture taken for the new Church of Peace Pictorial Directory.  You can register on-line on our website (www.uccchurchofpeace.org), by calling Connie Thome at 923-4058, or in the 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: Enter into my heart today, O Holy Spirit, and guide me in the way you would have me go.  Show me how to be a shining light in the lives of those around me.  Bless Carol Dehnel and her family with your comfort and peace. Amen.
