PRAYER CONCERNS: Continue to remember those with physical problems, undergoing treatments, shut-ins, those in Leisure Living, and PVNH.

ALL ARE WELCOME to join in a short time of prayer each Sunday from 9:40-9:50 AM downstairs as we pray specifically for our pastor, the worship time to come, as well as the work of our mission- aries bringing God’s love to people who have never known Him. Powerful Prayer: Each Sunday a team meets to pray for the Holy Spirit to move through our church during worship, as well as for the concerns of our missionaries as they spread the gospel. If you have a prayer request the team can pray over at that time and throughout the week, please fill out the form in your mailbox last week and drop it in Kim Zomer’s church mailbox; requests are confidential and can be submitted anonymously.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jodi De Lange (Sept. 28), Patty Ligtenberg (Sept. 29); Happy Anniversary to Wylie & Jennifer De Lange (Sept. 24), Wade & Danelle Sonnenberg (Sept. 25). Have a great day!
