PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our love for one another.

 That those struggling with their faith would find encouragement and support.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Brett Bethuy Family, Rich & Judy Nelson, and Leigh & Lucie Niece.
