Terry Boerman:  We give thanks to the Lord that Terry had an encouraging report from the doctor and another round of treatment.  He will be going in on October 1 for a heart ablation to address the rapid heartbeat spells.  Please continue to remember Terry in your prayers.


Howard Johnson:  Please continue to keep Howard in your prayers as he continues in his recovery after having a heart attack.  We pray that he will be able to make strides in his long road of recovery.


Josh & Chelsea VandenBosch:  Chelsea’s dad, Doug,

received the news that he is not eligible for a bone marrow transplant at this time.  Though disappointing, they will continue in his treatments in the hopes that a future biopsy will reveal that he is eligible.  We pray for the effectiveness of his treatments and for God’s continued faithfulness.


Elaine Venema:  We give thanks to the Lord that Elaine’s surgery went well and her surgeon believes that he was able to relieve the area that was causing her symptoms.


Joyce Zylstra:  Please be in prayer for Joyce as she received the news this past week that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  As she awaits further tests and scans, as well as treatment and/or surgical options, we pray for clarity, peace, and healing.

Howard Johnson would like to say “Thank you for all the prayers, cards, calls, and delicious food that we have received following my recent heart attack.  We are so thankful for your thoughtfulness.”


Todd VandenHeuvel would like to say “Thank You to my Church Family for all of your prayers, calls, and cards over the past few months.  I covet your continued prayers as I face another month of being completely off my feet.  I hope to be able to return to work in early November.”





Song Services:  The Worship Committee is planning for our monthly song services for the remainder of the year.  The Committee would like to have requests from the congregation, but without the hymnals in the pews, we need your input ahead of time to be able to project the chosen songs.  There is a box at the ‘Welcome Center’ to submit your song request.  Please write your name and song title on the paper provided and put the paper in the box.  We look forward to hearing from you and singing praise to God together again for our monthly song service.
