Friends:

Do not put your trust in oppression nor your hope in deception and plunder;
Even if they bring you prosperity it will do you no good.”  (Psalm 62)

What a blessing to celebrate the Baptisms of Paul and Elizabeth Kath last week!  And you should know that we all got to hear the premier performance of Ingo’s Lullaby composed by Catherine McSharry.

The Early Communion Class has 9 beautiful children in it and a variety of wonderful parents too.  The Special Celebration for this class will be on February 22.  Keep them in your prayers.

What an incredible gift our guest singer Dorothy Barnhouse offered us this past Sunday.  Who can ever forget the Vocalise by Rachmaninoff during Communion or the 23rd Psalm.   Aren’t we blessed to receive the gifts of so many artists at Peace?!

“MLK” is an oratorio for jazz orchestra composed by Marcus Shelby and performed by the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra featuring Faye Carol, Kenny Washington, Jeannine Anderson, and Nicolas Bearde. This composition is a musical tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Freedom Songs and Spirituals of the Civil Rights Movement.  Don’t miss this special FREE event! Fliers will be available at worship this next Sunday. Please encourage and invite your friends – Sunday/Feb. 8 at 5 pm.  We want to pack the house!

And Yes, our Crab Feast happens this year on March 7.  Mark you calendars now for this tasty event!

And don’t forget, beginning this Sunday Ps. Anita will be selling paper bead jewelry crafted by Bead for Life. Be prepared to be dazzled!

Blessings,  Pr. Steve
