REMEMBER IN PRAYER

Pray for our school-aged families and teachers in these coming weeks as they adjust to changes and new ways of being together.

We rejoice with Marg and Milt Mohr and their family as their grandson Hudson is recovering well from his surgery last week. Continue to keep him in your prayers.
