In worship this morning we celebrated Christian education and asked for God’s blessing on teachers and learners. The congregation pledged, among other promises, to pray for our volunteer teachers, so please help to fulfill that promise this week and throughout the Christian education year. The fall 2016-17 Christian education opportunities begin next week, Aug. 21 at 9 a.m. Adults will meet in Fellowship Hall and children will meet throughout the church building.
We also shared prayers for teachers, students and their parents who have started school, college or university classes or will be soon. We pray the academic year will be enriching!
Finally, we hold in our prayers Paul Johnson and his family. Paul was transferred recently to the Alive Hospice residence. His wife, Mary Ann, and their family ask for our prayers, as Paul appears to be approaching the end of his life.
