From Pastor Laurel (intended for last week’s bulletin)
It was a long four weeks of being sick at home with adrenal fatigue, but I am finally on the mend and even able to start back (slowly) to work. I want to say, “Thank you!” to everyone who encouraged me and helped me by praying for me, calling or texting me, sending cards, visiting me, running to the store and doing other errands,
cleaning my house, or providing meals for me. I truly don’t know what I would have done without you all, and I thank God for each and every one of you. You and your acts of kindness and love, are sterling examples of God’s outrageous love for me, and my life is so much richer because of you. Thank you for being the heart, hands, and feet of Jesus. I am proud to call you my friends and my brothers and sisters in the Lord. May God richly bless you all.
With heartfelt love and appreciation, Pastor Laurel

Marlys Waters apologizes for the incomplete website. The old site crashed on February 7, 2016 (along with 7 other websites). I was only able to save part of the format. Most of the missing photos will have to be identified and uploaded individually.
