We are so thankful for the ways you consistently show care and support for one another. Many of you have contacted us asking how you can support Wayne and Charlene in the aftermath of the house fire. We are grateful that, due to an outpouring of support from their neighbors and the larger community, they have a fridge full of meals and a place to stay for the immediate future. We plan to provide further updates to the congregation as needs arise. In the meantime, feel free to send encouraging cards or text messages.

Joel Diener & Kelsey Luke


We pray for...

April DarDar requests prayer for their family as they transition to a rental house in Clarkdale school district and attempt to sell their house in Meridian.

Lindsay Diener requests prayer for her newborn niece Pi Cornwell. She was airlifted to the children's hospital in New Orleans shortly after her birth due to a couple heart defects. She will likely need surgery in the coming days. Pi's parents are Welsey and Dominique.

Let's pray for Wayne and Charlene Gorrow as they deal with the aftermath of their home being destroyed in a fire. The insurance adjuster is scheduled to come today so we can pray for the insurance claim to move quickly.


Kelsey Luke is grateful that her grandmother, Gail Ladnier, returned home this weekend after a series of health complications. She still has a long road of recovery, but she is slowly improving,
If you have any prayer requests you would like shared in the pastoral prayer time of this Sunday's worship service, please send them to Joel Diener or Kelsey Luke.

Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost.

Why spend money on what is not bread,
   and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
   and you will delight in the richest of fare.

Isaiah 55:1-2
