Our Church Family
Prayers for God’s People:
- The De Graff family…Ultrasounds this week found that the
De Graff’s baby has a significant build-up of fluid on the
brain as well as other deformities that are likely due to
genetic issues. It is believed that these are lethal, and
testing is being done to know more. Please be in prayer for
hope and comfort as they seek to trust God.
- Continue to pray for Joyce Brink as she remains in rehab
at Sanford most likely for another 10 days. Progress is slow
is gaining back strength in her legs, and prayers are
coveted for that.
- Please continue to remember those undergoing treatments,
with physical problems, shut-ins, those in Leisure Living
and PVNH, and our missionaries.
Happy Birthday to Goldie Van Roekel (Oct.
11) and Joyce Brink (Oct. 14). Have a great day!
Pastor Appreciation Month: Regardless of the
month, we are so thankful for the ministry of Pastor Dan and
Christie in our church family and community. But October has
been officially designated as Pastor Appreciation Month, so it’s
the perfect time to share a personal thank you with the DeGraffs—and
maybe other pastors who have had an impact on you and your

Bible Study on Mark: In the book of Mark we
meet Jesus, the man who is King. He shatters our expectations.
He comes to serve and not to be served. He eats with sinners
rather than royalty. And His crown is made of thorns. This is
the one who calls us to follow Him. Dorcas Society is ordering
books to start this study on Oct. 25. If you’re interested, let
Pastor Dan or Juna know.

has convened a committee to explore a new church on the west
