Dear Church Family and Friends,
We hope and pray you are safe and well on this second Friday of March.
I know you will join with me in expressing our sympathy and prayers for Beverly Morris and Katie and Jon Catena and their families. Beverly’s son and Katie’s brother, Doug passed away this past Monday in Tallahassee from a ruptured aorta. He was 53 years old. Doug grew up in our church here at Peace Covenant and we lift up his family in our prayers.
I want to remind you to turn your clocks ahead by one full hour this Saturday evening. We are springing forward and we will be blessed with more daylight!
We have some good news to share with you. Ann Hansen, a regular winter attendee has decided to donate funds to refurbish our Fellowship Hall Kitchen in memory of her husband, Phil Hansen, who served here as an Elder and Chaired our Buildings and Grounds. The Session has graciously accepted and welcomed this gift from Ann. Doug Brown is working on the final plans to be implemented. Since our Fellowship Hall has been refurbished, our kitchen will now get a brand new makeover. Thank you Ann Hansen!
This Sunday is the second Sunday in Lent and I have decided to focus my Lenten preaching on the 7 Deadly Sins which became a part of Christian tradition over the years but are found all over the Bible. The first deadly sin I want to focus on is Pride. Do you know anyone who is full of themselves? No need to respond! Do you know someone who is not grateful for the blessings God has given them? Pride often leads to a major downfall and can turn a successful person into someone who is narcissistic, arrogant and boastful. Our Scripture lesson comes from a rare passage in 2 Chronicles 26.
Please keep in your prayers the Morris and Catena families, Beth Childress, the Gibson family and the people in Ukraine.
Have a blessed weekend and take an extra nap to make up for the lost hour,
