Bro. Darryl Miller’s mom is in Lakeview Hospital because of seizures.  She is undergoing tests to determine a medicine combination that will control them.  She will be having an EEG today.  This is a relatively new problem, so the family doesn’t understand what is happening yet.  Please pray for the Miller family.

“Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party – Tuesday at The Cafe at 11 A.M.

 

 

I’ve already packed my first group of shoeboxes.   I keep getting ideas in my head about more boxes and am anxious to do more.  I choose to pack boxes for the older boys and girls because that is the group that receives the least number of boxes.  I love the idea of helping little children have an opportunity to hear about Jesus and to receive gifts they would not normally receive.  It’s amazing how much can be stuffed in a “shoebox”!   Shoeboxes are available under the stairwell to the balcony.  They contain papers you need to read and to remove from the shoeboxes before packing.  The label is already on the top of the box.  You can give me your filled shoeboxes any time.
