Greetings from Church of Peace!
Tonight we will gather at 7:00 p.m. for a lovely candle-lit service of thanksgiving. Join us as we celebrate Holy Communion (in the pews), sing songs of praise, and take time to thank God for our many, many blessings. It will be a heart-warming service.
Advent is almost here! Sunday is the Advent Sunday of Hope – and who couldn’t use a little of that! The sanctuary will be resplendent in its blue finery, the Candle of Hope will be lit, and we’ll sing, O Come, O Come Emmanuel. You’ll receive your Reverse Advent Calendar to help make the season more holy. Join us 8:45 a.m. for this time of renewal.
The December Messenger is available on line on our website (www.uccchurchofpeace.org) and at the church.
Construction news: Isn’t it nice to have our parking areas back and better than ever? It was primarily inside work this week – they’ve been installing the stairs and the landings and hanging the suspended ceilings. The painting is moving along toward completion. Outside, the rain gutters have been hung. Great progress continues!
Think you know Fond du Lac pretty well? Golden Fellowship is coming up on Tuesday, December 6th at 11:00 a.m. We’ll have a fun slide show to see if we can identify some local landmarks. Lunch will follow. Sign up on the bulletin board for this smile-filled event.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
I’ll see you in church! Pastor Jenny
A prayer for today: I cannot count my blessings, O God, because you have provided so abundantly for me. Please accept my heartfelt thanks. As I head into the Advent season, help me to prepare the way of Christ by words of kindness and acts of generosity. Thank you, God. Amen.
