At the Community Thanksgiving Service that took place last Tuesday, November 22, at House of Fire Ministry on 11th Street I was honored for years of support for community efforts in the West End of Rock Island, and of our neighbor churches. The Church of Peace has a culture of support for our neighbors, so in honoring me the honor was really for the whole church and our commitment to being a good neighbor.
Represented at the event were House of Fire, Truth Temple, Calvary International Fellowship, First Lutheran, Gloria Dei Presbyterian along with Church of Peace.
There were quite a number of members of the Church of Peace as well. Not being “in” on what was going on I was especially impressed with the good turn out of our church members. The upper portion of the back wall above the chancel area at House of Fire is all a mirror. So while looking forward one can see who is in the congregation. As the evening proceeded more and more faces from Church of Peace were visible. Thanks to all members who were able to attend and support the service in this way.
I greatly appreciate this recognition of our church and my ministry.
