Hello Folks,

Merilee asked me to forward the following prayer request:


My Dad,  Jerry Spires (John Herman), was hospitalized this weekend with a serious infection due to his diabetes. He was scheduled for emergency surgery this morning, in which they will be amputating one of his legs. Please keep him in your prayers and please pray for my family as we support him through the challenges to come. Thank you.

Dear Church Family, 

Laura Ibanez just gave birth to a baby girl, she and her husband won't be able to host trapeza on August 8, 2021.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Baby shower for the Northcutt family

Matushka Patricia Whiteford
 

Dear Church Family,

As you know Dean and Brittany Northcutt are expecting their first baby, unfortunately, Brittany has developed some complications and she is scheduled to be induced in mid-August. Therefore the Sisterhood's original plan to host a baby shower for them will not happen.  

They don't have a lot of family and friends in Texas, so we are all they have. 

The Sisterhood would like to invite you to participate in giving them gifts through their baby registry at Target: 
Tgt.gifts/northcuttregistry

You may either give them the gifts in person in the next two Sundays or mail them directly to their home. Please consult our church directory for their address or email me at matushkagawei@...

The Northcutts really appreciate your love and support. May God bless you all.

In Christ,
The Sisterhood Council
