Pastor's Update - Peace in Jesus! 

Dear friends:
Are you a milk drinker? If so, as an adult, do you drink as much milk as you did when you were a child? My guess, probably not. As a close to perfect food, milk is necessary for a newborn and for children in their growing years. As adults we grow to understand that other foods also provide the nutrients we need to stay healthy and thrive.
In the Word for us this week, the New Testament writer to the Hebrews lovingly takes his readers to task for trying to live on milk alone. What is the milk of Bible teaching? What more could there be for us to learn and enjoy? How do we keep growing in our faith and lives of sanctification?
Learn more at worship with your Peace Family this Sunday at 9:00 a.m. or Monday at 6:30 p.m.
Remember: Monday evening’s service will be the last of the summer Mondays!
I’ll be helping with school cleaning tomorrow morning, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Why not join me as we carry out this important task together!
Worship the Lord!

“Mornings with Mommy”
Our “beach” session of Mornings with Mommy will e held on Thursday, August 23 from 10-11am.  We will be digging for treasure in our “sand” tote.  We will also have a story to read about the beach.  The leaders have made flyers with the dates of Mornings With Mommy through December.  They are located on our cabinet in the fellowship hall.  Please take one and give it to someone who might be interested in our sessions.  Children form ages 0-5 are invited and the fee is $5 per family.
Moccasin Ministry
Just a reminder that filled school bags need to be returned to the designated collection area in the Fellowship Hall by Sunday August 19th. If you missed out  on one of the 72 bags available, cash donations can be made to help with shipping costs and/or Visa cards for the teachers to purchase any extra supplies and paper.  See Eileen Stock or place in my mail slot.
We have a variety of t-shirts in different colors and sizes available in the Fellowship Hall.  If you have helped on this project or any of our other projects, or just want a free shirt, please take one as a thank you from Thrivent and Ladies Circle.
Watch the bulletin for further updates on this project.  God is good!
