Serving One Another

As needs arise within our church, we will communicate opportunities to serve one another through prayer and helping hands. Thanks for being the body of Christ!

  • Please pray for Kim Cadeau. Praise: Kim is feeling much better! Request: Please continue to pray for full recovery and for the procedure to be effective against her cancer. She has a CT scan and followup appointment this month.
  • Please pray for Karen Walton as she continues to recover. The latest update: Karen will be having weekly dilations (every Thursday) for 6 weeks. Please pray that these treatments will be successful in widening the passageway so that she can swallow food.”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God…Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3:16-18, 36

“For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:19-20

Grace and peace.
