Song Packets are available at the entrances of the Sanctuary.  Please feel free to pick up a copy if you have difficulty seeing the projection screen.





Terry Boerman:  Please keep Terry in your prayers as he was treated for a high pulse rate while taking the Ladies Group to Shipshewana this past Wednesday.  Thankfully he was discharged and able to come home.  After coming home, he experienced a high pulse rate again and went to Zeeland ER who then sent him to Spectrum Health-Grand Rapids for further tests to determine the cause.  We pray for Terry’s health and pray he will make a full recovery.


Lola DeRoo:  Please keep Lola in your prayers as she has decided to discontinue her clinical trial treatments and is now seeking care through Hospice.  We pray for Lola and her family during this season asking the Lord to provide comfort and peace.


Gert Gruppen:  Please keep Gert in your prayers as she continues on Hospice care at SKLD.  We pray for comfort and peace for her and her family.


Gen Huizenga:  Please remember Gen in your prayers as she experienced a fall two weeks ago that resulted in her pelvis being broken in two places.  We are thankful that she did not need surgery.  Gen has been transferred to Freedom Inn in Holland for rehabilitation.


Tim & Amy Schutt Family:  Please keep Tim’s brother-in-law, Brad Holwerda, in your prayers as he was recently diagnosed with a mass on his brain.  We pray for Brad & his wife and their 2 children, and pray that this mass is not cancerous and that he can be relieved of it safely with no complications or side effects.


Vern VanKlompenberg:  Please be in prayer for Vern as he was hospitalized at Spectrum-Zeeland with an infection.  We pray that as he receives antibiotics, he can be relieved of his infection and pain.
