From The Deacons:  North Street has been given a generous donation of over-the-counter medicine – including children’s items, dental items, pain relievers, and more.  There are 2 tables set up in Room #1 (Children’s Worship Room).  Adults may come to the room and help yourself to a few items.  If you have any questions, please contact a Deacon.

 

 

 

 

Terry Boerman: We give thanks to the Lord that after another episode of a rapid heart rate, Terry was able to see his heart specialist who recommended a heart ablation procedure in the hopes of relieving these recurring episodes.  We pray that this would bring relief and not hinder his chemotherapy treatments.

 

Betty Kroll:  We give thanks to the Lord that Betty will soon be done with her chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  We pray that the subsequent scans to come will show the effectiveness of these treatments and pray that they have eradicated all her cancer cells.

 

Brian Mast:  We give thanks to the Lord that after experiencing a fall while biking that resulted in a broken wrist, Brian was able to have surgery this past Tuesday and is recovering well.  We pray that his back to school preparation will not be hindered by his recovery.

 

Joyce Rigterink:  Please remember Joyce in your prayers as she experienced a tendon tear near her hip.  We are thankful that the pain has lessened and is less frequent.  We pray that she may continue to experience progress in her healing.

 

Todd VandenHeuvel:  Please pray for Todd as he had foot surgery this past Thursday.  We pray that he would be able to make a full recovery allowing him to increase his mobility and return to work.

 

Elaine Venema:  Please keep Elaine in your prayers as she will be going in for surgery this week Friday, August 28.  We pray that the surgery goes well and relieves the pain she has been experiencing.

 

Ron & Marianne Vos:  We give thanks to the Lord that Ron & Marianne’s daughter, Connie, received encouraging reports from her biopsies and that no further treatments are necessary.
