Greetings from Church of Peace 10-08-15

Greetings from Church of Peace!

What a full weekend we are looking forward to at Church of Peace! On Friday at 7:00 p.m., the confirmands, some junior coaches, and the adult coaches leave for the overnight retreat at Pilgrim Center. We’ll be studying the sacraments and having a lot of fun.

On Saturday morning, the Worship Enhancement Team will come in to transform our sanctuary into a display of abundance and beauty as they ready it for Harvest Home.

Sunday morning, the Harvest Home service will be held, complete with hymns of thankfulness, Scriptures about God’s gifts of abundant growth, and a sermon on prayer. The beauty of this service will touch your heart deeply. Join us at 8:45. Social hour will follow and the Sunday School teachers will continue to bless our children with the priceless gift of faith.

We have three people in the hospital. June Kohnke and Edsel Wiegert are at St. Agnes. Lucy Zahn is in Madison for some surgery to help her breathing. Please remember these people as you bring your requests to God in prayer.

Monday night’s Bible study continues to welcome new people. The conversation has been described as “inspirational” and “interesting.” Stop in at 6:30 p.m.

Photo sessions begin this Tuesday. If you have questions or haven’t yet signed up, please call Connie Thome at 923-4058 or sign up on our website: 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: O God, like a heavenly artist, you surround me with loveliness. May my life today reflect that same kind of beauty to those around me as I touch their lives with joy and peace. I ask your healing presence be active in the lives of June Kohnke, Edsel Wiegert, and Lucy Zahn during their hospitalizations. Thank you, God. Amen.
