“But if we live in the light, as God is in the light, we can share fellowship with each other.
Then the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from every sin.
If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
1 John 1:7-8 NCV~
David‘s blood level continues to run low, but about the same. The doctors are beginning to think this is the “new normal” for him. Yesterday, he was given an option regarding receiving a unit of blood. David chose not to get it yesterday, but to wait until he feels the need more. He can get his blood any day this week, so we don’t have to wait until next Monday. Thank you for your continued prayers.

Operation Christmas Child at FBC, Kentwood
- Last year, we received parade throws like beads and small stuffed animals. If you have some that you have no plans for, please leave them at the church office or in the classroom next to the choir. We will find them very useful when packing OCC “shoeboxes” later this year. Thank-you so much!
- The large basket on the organ has some plastic “eggs” already. If you have some you don’t need to keep, please share them. They will be use for OCC in several different ways.
