It was a great day of worship this past Sunday. Outdoor evening worship was a blast! We should do that again sometime.
I will have Bible study this evening rain or shine. Bring a chair or blanket and a Bible (and bug spray if needed). We’ll meet on the hill where we did last week unless it is raining. In that case, we’ll meet under the narthex portico. We’ll be looking at Matthew 18:21-35.
An outdoor prayer service is being planned for the near future. Stay tuned for details.
Have a great rest of the week.
Grace and Peace.

YHC Chapel Snacks
We are collecting snacks for YHC students. You may drop off any donations at the office door with curbside service.
PRAYER QUILT MINISTRY
We prayerfully and urgently ask you to stop and take a few minutes to offer prayers for the name(s) listed below. Prayers are powerful no matter how offered! Knots on the quilts still will be tied by friends and family on the other end of the journey and will give the recipient further support and thankfulness.
This week’s requests:
Tim McClure - triple bypass surgery soon, also a diabetic. He is a friend of Aurore Miller.
JJ Southard- left paralyzed a massive stroke along with other losses. He is a family friend of Pat Clay.
Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
