With your prayerful and financial assistance, we continue to minister to the community beyond our church:
- Friends of the Unborn, a ministry that provides housing and training for homeless pregnant women up in the Boston, MA area. We send quarterly donations of CVS, Target and Wal-Mart gift cards to them for their personal and infant needs
- Prison Ministry-occasional collections are made for inmate accounts, allowing them to purchase supplies and snacks
- Veterans’ Ministry-pastoral support at various veteran events
- Piercing the Darkness-community outreach through book publishing, seminars, speaking engagements, Civil Air Patrol and Veterans/Chaplaincy duty
- Dr. Shirley has begun a Monday night “Prayer Altar” at 7:30 pm at the church and all are welcome. Hearts are changing and being blessed in these sessions.
- Dr. Shirley will be traveling to New Orleans soon with her granddaughter to see her baby grandson. Prayers are appreciated.
- Pastor Mark was given a miracle! He was rushed to the ER a few nights ago with Atrial Fibrillation (erratic heart palpitations). His heart would not readjust on its own. After much testing, they were all set to do a cardioversion (shock his heart!), but just as they were getting ready to do the procedure, God stepped in and Mark’s heart went back into regular rhythm without any assistance. Whew! He is doing well and praising God.
- Evangelist Drew just returned from a month-long business trip, but continues to share the Lord and pray with the many people he meets. His daughter Vanessa accompanied him on this adventure.
- Pastor Ted traveled to Arkansas to participate as chaplain to a group of security personnel that were assisting a church with defining and setting up their security needs. During the “mission”, he was interviewed on a local radio station and had the opportunity to praise the Lord to a larger audience.
- June D. continues her walking regimen. She is a cancer survivor and praises the Lord with each step. Faithfully going along with her each step of the way is her daughter, Cathy. Way to go girls!
- Carolyn M.'s mother, Margaret, is in a nursing home and prayers are appreciated for her health and comfort. Margaret continues praising the Lord and communicates via the internet now. What a humble Christian example she is…no complaints and all praise!
- Pastor Linda completed a 5K run a few weekends ago. Unbeknownst to her, it was a cross-country run…meaning it was in the woods with all the dirt and the mud. She said it was more walking and crawling than running, but she finished!
That should do it for now. We love and cherish each one of you and humbly thank you for your participation with us in this portion of His vineyard. Well done good and faithful servants.
