…by water and the Holy Spirit we are reborn children of God and made members of the church, the body of Christ… (ELW order for Baptism)
Choir practice at 8:45 am. New voices are always welcome!
The morning will begin with the baptism of Vivian Mueller. This is a little change from the normal order of things, but setting the baptism within the entrance rite helps us see the sacrament as our way of entrance into the Christian life. So please try to be here on time so that you can witness the event. Vivian’s parents, Lee and Jordan, and brother Toby will become members of the church at the same time.
Intern Anna Mullen will preach. The academic year is ending and Anna’s field work with us will end as well. She will return to Des Moines for the summer and in August return to HDS for her last year of study. Anna and I are now working on our final evaluations of the year. When they are finished I will send them out to anyone interested. I hope that next year we might find another student to work with us at Peace. We’ll miss Anna.
Members who have been at Peace for 30-40 years will be recognized by the anniversary committee.
Noah and Bella Stefancik will receive their first communion. God bless them!
