Good morning Peace Covenant Family,
I know you will join with me in expressing our sympathy and prayers to Shirley Wood and her family on the passing of her husband, Norman Wood on Wednesday. Shirley and Norman were significant members of our church for many years. There will be no service at this time. Shirley has requested no phone calls but will appreciate cards and letters. Please send them to this address:
2008 Chatsworth Way
Tallahassee, Florida 32309
This Sunday is a fun day for kids and everyone! It is Snow Cone Sunday after church. Invite your neighbors and friends to join us this Sunday at 10 a.m. for worship followed by enjoying some wonderful snow cones.
Please note the time change for our worship service beginning on Sunday, September 1 at 11 a.m.
This past Tuesday I was privileged to hand a check to Gerald Adams Elementary School thanks to Beverly Morris and Katie Catena and many of you! I am attaching a picture of me handing the check to School Principal Dr. Fran Herrin, Assistant Principal Dr. Kyle Sheer and School Counselor Tammy Orcutt.
We were able to raise from our church donations a total of $3182 to Gerald Adams Elementary School! $1000 from the Carol Hankamp/Laura Reed Mission Outreach Fund given to the Needy Children’s Fund. $2182 from our congregation in donations for needy children “Backpacks for Kids” to purchase school supplies to students who cannot afford them. Thank you!
We are inviting all of you, our church family to a Church Baby Shower. That’s right, we are having a baby at Peace Covenant! Well, not exactly. Richard and Heather Smothers are having a baby. As you know, Heather’s family has been a part of Peace Covenant for decades and she currently serves as an Elder at our church. The Baby Shower will be on October 6 in the Fellowship Hall beginning at 3 p.m. If you are going to attend, either email me or text me to let me know!
We encourage you to go on to Amazon and browse the list of items they have requested. If you are going to attend in person then I encourage you to have the items shipped to your home address and bring them to the shower. That is exactly what Jaye J. and I are doing. If you are out of town and you want them shipped to me then have them sent to :
1550 Venetian Drive
Key West, Florida 33040
Here is how to browse and purchase items: Go to www.amazon.com/baby-reg/7W4SDPPQFFYV
. You can include a gift message for free as well. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
Please keep in your prayers this week a member of our church and a daughter of a member of our church who are fighting to win the battle of cancer. May God give them extra strength this week.
This Sunday I will be preaching from John 4 and the Woman at the Well. I touched on it briefly at the end of my sermon last Sunday. The sermon title is: A Conspiracy of Grace!
