Greetings from Church of Peace!
It is hot! But in our lovely air-conditioned sanctuary on Sunday, we'll be comfortable as we sing, pray, and hear the Word of God together. Our theme will be "What is faith?" We will dedicate prayer shawls for Rev. Jim and Mary Klein.
Rev. Jim Klein remains hospitalized. Rev. Jerry Schrankler is returning home today after a time in the hospital. So please keep these former pastors in your prayers this week.
Monday is the last softball game before tournaments. It will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Sabish Middle School. Come cheer on our team!
Construction news: Doesn't the new addition look spectacular? Today the roofers are at work putting shingles on the canopy. Late last week, a plumber was under the floor of Gammert Hall determining the next step for the family bathroom.
A week from this coming Sunday, on Ausut 14th, we will host our outdoor worship and church picnic at Taylor Park shelter at 10:00 a.m. Please bring your own chair and a dish to pass (sub sandwiches, plates, utensils, and water will be provided). There will be a free swim at the pool from 1-4 for Church of Peace family and friends.
It is almost time for day camp! Wednesday, August 17th from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. will be Church of Peace Day Camp at Pilgrim Center for families and individuals who want to have fun and experience what it is like to go to church camp. There will be swimming, faith-building, a nature walk, crawdad fishing, and lots of great food. All members of the church family are invited and children can bring a friend or two. Sign-up sheets are located in your Messenger or at the church office.
That's the news from Church of Peace.
We'll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: Loving God, I am grateful that you always stop and listen when I call out to you. Open my ears to the call of the world around me and show me how to respond with your love. Shine your healing light upon Revs. Jim Klein and Jerry Schrankler. Amen.
