Greetings from Church of Peace!
We hope you are keeping warm on these frigid days. Isn’t it great to know that our congregation is helping people stay warm and well-fed through our ministries of caring? Thanks to all who donated food and money over the Advent and Christmas seasons.
Sunday’s Scripture finds Jesus grown up and ready to begin his ministry. We’ll think together about his baptism and our baptisms. Holy Communion will be celebrated in the pews. We will hand out individual Bible verses for 2018.
Connie Thome is a resident of the Hospice Home of Hope. Please pray for her comfort and peace.
The January Messenger will be available on line this afternoon (www.uccchurchofpeace.org) and the paper copies will be at the church on Sunday.
Coming up: On Sunday, January 28th the Annual Meeting of the congregation will be held at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. On Sunday, January 14th an informational meeting about the budget will be held in the Multipurpose Room at 10:00 a.m.
That’s the news from Church of Peace.
We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim
A prayer for today: Shine your warm light upon and within me, O God, so that I will be filled with your love and experience your hope. I pray for all people who are cold today that they might find shelter. I pray that Connie Thome will find comfort and peace. Amen.
