for Jana VanSingel on
Tuesday December 2nd at 6:30 pm. Need some
ideas for gifts??? How about a grocery item
and perhaps a gift card to a grocery store?
How about a favorite recipe card with all the
ingredients purchased to make the dish?
Please no spices as Jana & Mark already have
many spices. Mark’s children have some food
restrictions that are necessary to follow,
therefore, gift cards would be most welcome
also. Thank you!
Prayers requested for...
Don Hudson who had surgery on Wednesday to
repair a broken bone from a fall at home.
Ernie & Edie Walton as Edie continues to care for
Ernie.
Faith Mouthaan’s step mother and sister who are
