Prayer of the Day
Humble King Jesus, you teach us through your living, that love takes sides with the marginalized. By riding into Jerusalem on a donkey rather than a steed, you align yourself with the meek and the lowly. By telling the disciples how they will abandon you, you acknowledge our fears. Open our hearts to understand the absurdity of objectivity and give us the courage to stand with you. Amen.

We have installed a new Blessing Box in the front of the church (in the same place as the old one). It is seeing a lot of use these days. We would like to keep it replenished for any who need assistance. Keep in mind that it is not a working refrigerator so if you'd like to help, nonperishable foods and supplies are still best!

Stop The Spread
Notice from Bear River Health Department:
"With the recent statewide increase of the average daily coronavirus cases, Utah's hospital capacity is being strained. As such, we ask our residents to individually do their part to reduce the spread of the illness. We remind everyone to practice social distancing, stay home when sick, wash your hands and wear a mask. As we move indoors and begin to gather in small groups for the holidays, keep your defenses up and practice good health hygiene. Additionally, we continue to remind those who are 65 and over, are immune-compromised, or have some sort of underlying health condition to protect themselves by minimizing contact with others. These are effective tools to use to ensure our healthcare system is not overwhelmed. Our healthcare workers are dedicated professionals who are committed to protecting the health of our community. We encourage everyone to take individual responsibility to help our healthcare system by taking these preventative actions that are effective in reducing the spread of the virus."

Simply Giving through the company Vanco. Prince of Peace has been working with this
company for quite awhile with no problems. They do charge a percentage fee to the church for this service.There is a form you need to fill out; and the Financial Secretary can set it up. The form asks for name, address, Amount and frequency of contribution and your bank account info.(I will try and attach a pdf of the form for viewing. To protect your personal information, please do not email the form to me or the church).
4) FYI: For the safety of the counters:

envelope or use a self‐sealing envelope.
