Prayer Requests: We are beginning a new Prayer Request Ministry at the church. Please call or email the church office or let Pastor Scott know of any concerns you would like to be held in prayer and whether you want the request to be private, or forwarded to the congregation. Initially, we will be forwarding prayer requests by email using the all-church email list that Leslie put together. If you’d rather not receive these emails, please let us know and we will take you off the list immediately. If you don’t use email, please call the church office or let Pastor Scott know and someone will call you with these prayer requests as we receive them.
We are pleased to have Myra Trask playing our service today as Jack and Jo Ellis are on a well-deserved vacation.
Communion Offering: We will be collecting for NEXT and the Detroit Baptist Manor offering throughout the month of July. Please prayerfully consider your gift that puts help in the hands of those most in need.
