Bill Daley is struggling with depression, and may have Parkinson’s and is showing signs of Alzheimer’s. Pat Games (Brian’s Dad) is now home from bladder surgery. The pathology report indicated the cancer had grown into his bladder wall. It is in stage 2, which means it is very treatable. He has begun chemo therapy. June Metcalf (Amy Games’ mom) had what they think was a mini-stroke. They’ve contacted hospice. Amy Games’ brother-in-law has colorectal cancer. He will have surgery soon. Karen Lucas had surgery on an infected leg. Adam Sambuco is in Beijing, China, working for an architecture firm for three months. Jim Strauss had surgery to remove his gall bladder last week.

The directories are finished! The new directory inserts are available on the table across from Brad’s office. If you need a binder, we have some available.


We are beginning to collect pantry items to donate to the Potter’s Children Home. Items we will be collecting are individual bags of potato chips, bottled water, window cleaner, canned chicken, canned pineapple slices & crushed pineapple, 9 volt batteries, and yellow cake mixes. Mike Gaston is coordinating this effort. There will be a collection box in the back hallway and one by the teen room.


Camp Concern Brochures are available on the table by the entrance door. This is a life-changing opportunity!


In order to help us best serve the congregation’s prayer needs, we keep requests for members on the list as long as necessary. Requests we receive for friends and extended family stay on the list for about three weeks, unless we receive an update. This is to ensure we are stay up-to-date. Thank you so much for your commitment to praying for others!


If you are interested in hosting summer devotional for our teens, there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by the water fountain. If you have questions, see Brad.


From time to time, all of us feel the need to re-enroll the school of prayer. Recently a friend asked me to help him learn to pray more effectively. As I thought about it, I realized I need to improve my prayer life.

Next week’s lesson by Phil Sanders is, “Ask, Seek, Knock”The program can be seen locally every Sunday, 7:30a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
