PRAISE & PRAYER CONCERNS

May 19, 2019

CHURCH CALENDAR
And when you pray this week: Praise our Lord and Savior; Praise God for giving you the invitation to pray. Praise God for giving you the desire to learn to pray. Ask God to strengthen your prayer life. Thank Him for His many blessings; Pray for our church and the members; for our country; and ask extra blessings and help for the following:

Dear Church Family,
    Good morning! Hope everyone is having a good week. Julie Stephenson and I had a lovely time at the Clergy Retreat. It's good to spend time in a beautiful environment with beautiful people. We shared meals, prayers, laughter, tears, and worship. We even went on a fieldtrip. We came back refreshed and rejuvenated. The devotion that I tested on you Sunday went very well. The clergy loved it! I also got to lead a workshop on Praying in Color where we painted our prayers. It also went well. The only bad thing was that the AC in my car stopped working for our trip home. Julie and I were wind swept, hot, sweaty and tired by the time we got home, but at least we made it home safely!
    This afternoon, Marty and I are headed back up to the Mayo Clinic. Marty will be undergoing some scans, chemo, and we will meet with the pancreatic specialist to discuss where we will go from here with his treatment. There is a small possibility that he will undergo surgery to remove the rest of the tumor in the pancreas, but we won't know the answer to that question until Thursday. We are planning on being back next weekend if all goes to plan.
    This Sunday we have the honor of Rev. Marilyn Fiddmont grace our pulpit once again. She was our speaker at last year's Lenten Interfaith Preaching Series. She is always worth hearing. Marilyn will be preaching on Acts 11:1-18 "It's the Same Jesus." So, please make it a point to come to church and support her!
    Have a great week. Give me a call if you need anything! (But no one is allowed to get sick or be hospitalized when I'm gone! )
Blessings,
Pastor Beth
