PERSONAL NOTES

Congratulations to Elmer and Ethel Zehr who are celebrating their 68th anniversary today, Sunday, January 10.

With grateful heart to my church family; I wish to thank everyone who touched my life during and after my recent surgery. All your prayers, cards, phone calls, flowers and gifts of food were greatly appreciated. Blessing, Rose Wagler

REMEMBER IN PRAYER

Please pray for Terry & Elaine Tweedle’s son Mark in Mississauga who is starting treatment for recently discovered stage 4 cancer.

In response to the escalation of violence that led to Wednesday’s events on Capitol Hill we pray with our Mennonite Church USA siblings:
Dear God, Grant us your peace this day.
Help us to be effective instruments of your peace as we live out our call.
Help us to love our neighbor and trust in your transforming power.
Grant us wisdom in conversations. Let us appreciate each and every one of your creations.
Watch over us and protect us in this time of uncertainty.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
