Announcements: December 15, 2018
Today’s Offering: As we come to the end of the year, our current giving pattern to Church Budget will be $10,700 short of meeting our very conservative budget.
Our tree offering on Dec. 22 will be sent to the Minnesota Adventist Prison Ministries for their Christmas Behind Bars program. These funds provide gift packages to inmates in Minnesota jails and prisons and to group homes and homeless shelters. Our church has pledged to sponsor 160 gifts bags at $3.50 each.
1. Please Remember In Prayer: Judy Hervig, Marilyn Alder, Roberta Crowell, Dan Daniels, Rick Janzen, Vernadine Jensen, Virgil Krogstad, Bob Klein, and Mike Kraemer. Also please remember our church school teachers, plus all our Bible study contacts.
Special Prayer Request: “A routine x-ray and follow-up CT scan show four nodules scattered in Judy Hervig’s right lung. She’ll be undergoing necessary scans and biopsy in the next couple of weeks. Please pray for manageable results and the Lord’s leading in this situation.”
