HAVE YOU MISSED A SERMON?
Should you have missed any sermons this year–or would like to re-listen again, please take a look back over the below list of sermon titles that are available on-line (Youtube) since April 5. We are so grateful to Boyd Lowry for the gift of his time and technical talents and knowledge which have enabled us to have our services available to us on-line — now and since the pandemic began. Should you be interested in reading any of Pastor Terry’s sermons from this year prior to April 5, please contact him, and will arrange for you to receive a copy. Please note that the messages shared by our visiting pastors — on the dates Pastor Terry was on vacation — were also recorded and are available on-line, as well.
In addition, we are blessed for Janet Montroy and the gifts of the beautiful music she has shared with us each and every Sunday, and continues to do so,…for her talents on the organ and piano, and for bringing us such wonderful guest soloists and instrumentalists.

As many of us continue to remain close to home during this time — or take precautions when we do venture out — we ask that you continue to keep each other in prayer.
Please continue to pray for our church members, families, and those close to us who have shared a special part of our lives —
Prayer is a way to help comfort others — to express our love and understanding; sometimes it is the only thing we can do.
Please keep Susan (& Bruce) Beal in your prayers as we move forward into another week, as Susan will be undergoing a long-awaited shoulder surgery on Thursday, November 19th.
Our ongoing prayers continue for Anne Allen & Family (including Anne’s daughters, Liz & family and Sara & Boyd Lowry & Family); Ed Archbold; Rich Balch & family; Debbie Azzarone & Family (including Debbie’s daughter, Elizabeth & Kyle Popiolek & Family); Laura Bird-Bennett & Family; Trudy Carhart & Family; Okey Chenoweth & Family); Rich Dethmers; Beryl Ferrari; Jean Franklin; Terry Gilligan & Family; Colleen Janssen & Family; Eric Lundquist & Family; Janice Roed; Connie Sinkway and the Sinkway/Emery Family; Pam Speck; Doris Van Ostenbridge & Family; Rev. Jerry Wright and Family; Barbara Zucchino & Family; the Ruth Rankin Leaper Family
In addition, please keep all those whose lives have been affected and lost by the blazing ravaging wildfires in California ….., and in addition, now in Colorado. We pray that God continues to strengthen, comfort, and provide for all who have lost loved ones, their homes or vehicles, special heirlooms in these disasters and that aid is provided in helping to put lives back together.
