Prayers of the Church We are praying for Laura and David Gore as they are in the hospital preparing for the birth of their first child. We were excited to see Shelly Macy in worship this past Sunday. She is doing well after her surgery. It was also exciting to see Michael Allikas, who we have been praying for, in worship. Others in our prayers include Iris Englebrecht, Bob Greenlee, Saron McLaughlin and Don Stupp. We pray for our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett, Rob Greenlee and Zachary Boyd. Also Taylor Macy in Senegal with the Peace Corps is in our prayers.
Here is the Prayer of the Day for this Sunday, the 20th Sunday after Pentecost: “Almighty and ever-living God, increase in us your gift of faith, that, forsaking what lies behind and reaching out to what lies ahead, we may follow the way of your commandments and receive the crown of everlasting joy, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Our hayride last Sunday was a blast It was at the Warrick Farm at 8055 Union Road with a campfire, great food, pumpkins, petting zoo, a corn box and, of course, a hayride.
Our picture in the paper Did you happen to see our picture in the Dayton Daily News? Our parade group was in there with a nice color picture. Many thanks to all who helped us with our group and got us this nice exposure.
A good piece of scripture Here is some scripture from the E-100: Mark 10:27.......Jesus looked at them and said, “For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.”
