We celebrate with Aubrey Elizabeth Gibson and her family upon her baptism this past Sunday. Our prayers are also with Justin Wantz, Lois Masters, Hazel Shell, Diana Washburn, Herb Greggerson, Don Stupp, Bob Greenlee, Iris Englebrecht and our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee. We have just learned that Betty Daily is in hospice. Taylor Macy is in Senegal with the Peace Corps and she is also in our prayers.
Here is the Prayer of the Day for Christ the King Sunday: O God of power and might, your Son shows us the way of service, and in him we inherit the riches of your grace. Give us the wisdom to know what is right and the strength to serve the world you have made, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Prayers of Thanks We continue to say “thank you God” for great results on our “Miracle Sunday”. Not only did we have a great service, a great attendance and a great baptism but we also had great results with help for our finances. When the final totals were counted and announced, $21,080.78 was gathered for the ministry here at 213 E. Central Avenue. Thank you God for your wonderful gifts!!!
A good piece of scripture Here is another good verse from the E-100: Matthew 25:40..........”Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
