Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Today, let’s thank God for all the many things that are good about our country. Also, let’s ask God to improve, or even correct, the many things that need to be changed about our country.


We all have a number of friends and/or family members who are ill. Some are home and others are hospitalized. Some have had or will face surgery soon. Some have minor coughs and colds, etc. Please pray for them by name or as a group. Be sure to say special prayers for the elderly.

We are thankful for the items you have already turned in this year. Weekly, we are asked about what we need for our shoeboxes. We have been working to inventory the items we have in for “Shoeboxes, 2023”. I am very happy to say we have met our goal with balls, cups and bowls, toy dinosaurs, folders, pens, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, and highlighters. Some it the items we can use more of are coloring books, single subject composition books, bandanas, size 12 underwear for boys and girls, marbles, calculators, play dough, and 8″ scissors. I hope this list is a good guide for your shopping this week. You can leave your purchases in the basket near the front right exit of the sanctuary or give them to Bob and Jackie Babin or David and me. We appreciate all your support for the many children who will receive our boxes this year.

Let you “light” shine for Jesus today.
