For no one is cast off by the Lord forever.  

Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love.

~Lamentations 3:31-32~

Please continue to pray for families of all those who have covid. May each one also feel a greater dose of God’s love and care.

Pray for covid victims at home who are struggling to overcome this disease after weeks of being sick. Pray they can begin to “see the light at the end of the tunnel”.

Thanks to a donor for the bag of glue sticks I found in the collection tote in the fellowship hall.

There are now two totes there. One is still for OCC, but the other one is for the Fall Food Roundup for the LA Baptist Children’s home.
