Greetings from Church of Peace!
We’ll be celebrating Holy Communion on Sunday. The Scripture reading will focus on living a Christian lifestyle. Join us at 8:45 for a time of renewal and blessing.
We’ve been holding the people of Texas and Louisiana in our prayers. If you wish to make a financial contribution through the United Church of Christ’s Disaster Relief Fund, just write a check to Church of Peace, list Hurricane Harvey on the memo line, and put it in the offering on Sunday. This money will be used for food and supplies in flood-stricken areas. Thank you!
Do you have a home in a high-traffic area of the city? Would you be willing to put a sign in your yard to advertise the Church of Peace Fall Festival? If so, you can pick up a sign on Sunday. Thank you!
In the days to come:
Sunday School for All Ages begins on Sunday, September 10th.
The Church Family Bike Ride and Picnic will be held on Sunday, September 17th at 11:15 a.m. in Lakeside Park. Please sign up.
Golden Fellowship’s Summer Show and Tell will be on Tuesday, September 19th at 11:00. Please sign up in the narthex.
The Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, September 23 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
For more information on these and lots of other topics, check out our September Messenger on line at www.uccchurchofpeace.org or pick one up at the church.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: Thank you, O God, for blessing me with your presence today. Help me to feel your nearness and love. Shine your light of peace into my heart. Show me how to bless others with the love which you have shown to me. I pray for all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. May the aid they need arrive promptly and may their fears be calmed by your loving Spirit. Amen.
