Pray for the Garrett Family

Please be praying for Brett and Cindi Garrett and their family following the death of their son Christopher, who died in a work-related truck accident on December 5, 2017. Please also keep Christopher's wife Karla in your prayers, that God may grant all of their family/families with His comfort in these difficult days. While we deeply mourn Christopher's passing, we take comfort in knowing that He is in heaven with Jesus. There will be a memorial service for Christopher later in December, most likely during the days following Christmas.

 

Vera Wisely has been in declining health in recent days and she was called home to be with Jesus on December 7, 2017, at the age of 104.  There will be a service at a later date and we will announce that when we know. Please keep Marilyn Johnston and all of their family in your prayers.

 

Love Offering

In response to the passing of Pastor Jesse's mom in Kansas, we are collecting a love offering to provide Jesse with airfare to be used for him to visit his father at a later date or for him to fly his father out for a visit. Pastors can't always get away to support their families as they would like so this gift will allow Pastor Jesse the opportunity to minister to his father in the months to come. If you would like to contribute to this love offering please designate your gift "airfare." Thank you!
