Terry Boerman:  We give thanks to the Lord that Terry’s most recent scans have shown that his cancer is stable and has not grown.  We give thanks that his current treatment has proven to be effective in limiting its spread.  We pray that his continuing with this treatment will continue to provide similar results.


Tim & Amy Schutt:  We give thanks to the Lord that Tim & Amy’s brother-in-law, Brad, was able to have a successful surgery to remove 70% of his brain tumor.  Brad has a very long road of recovery ahead of him and so we continue to pray for his health and healing in this time.


Helen VanZanten:  Please be in prayer as Helen has been moved to the Maple Cottages at Resthaven on 32nd Street in Holland.  We pray that this transition goes well for her and she is able to receive the care that she needs.


Jim Zwiers:  Please remember Jim in your prayers as he is recovering from an infection in his leg.  We pray that this infection will clear soon and allow him to return to regular activities.

The Bridge Youth Center is in need of food to feed the kids lunch on Mondays-Thursdays each week.  Anything from individual snacks to actual meals.  They also always enjoy baked goodies.


The Bridge Youth Center has a mini pantry outside of their door.  The supply of food to stock this pantry is running really low.  Macaroni & Cheese, cereal, spaghetti sauce & pasta, peanut butter & jelly, or anything your family would enjoy.  Please consider donating any of these items.  Your support is always appreciated!
