Ed M’s surgery was successful, he’s in the cardiovascular intensive care for a couple of days, and then to a room. Thanks for praying- please keep doing so.
See if you know who these people are:
Please remember Lucas A. He had a severe reaction to cashews and had to be taken to the ER.
Update. Lucas is much improved but they are keeping him for overnight observation. Thanks to all of you for remembering him. It was scary for him and his family.
We will not have a Fellowship Meal this evening. Come at 7 for worship.
We hope everyone is well. Please remember that our snow policy is not to cancel services. If you can get here safely, and in your own judgment that is possible, someone will be here to join you. However, the back entrance is inaccessible this morning (because no sun hits it) so please do not attempt to enter in the back. The front doors are open.
Please remember Sandy L. She has had a stroke and has been taken to the hospital.
Please remember Ed M. He will have quadruple bypass on Tuesday (or so). Remember his family as well.
Janie’s surgery went very well and though they had planned to keep her overnight she needn’t be kept so they’ve sent her on home.
Remember too Ed M. He had a checkup with his heart doc today and has significant blockage in several arteries. They are taking steps now to correct the blockage- and hoping that their measures will make bypass unnecessary.
If a hardened heart be to be broken, it is not stroking, but striking that must do it.… The heart is not melted into godly sorrow, nor raised to the life of faith and love, by the bubbles of a frothy wit, or by a game at words, or useless notions, but by the illuminating beams of sacred truth, and the attraction of divine displayed goodness, communicated from a mind that by faith has seen the glory of God, and by experience found that he is good, and that lives in the love of God: such a one is fitted to assist you first in the knowledge of yourselves, and then in the knowledge of God in Christ. – Richard Baxter
