Congratulations to all those celebrating birthdays this week:
Audrey Bos – Feb 1
Bert Sjaarda and Linnea Nonkes – Feb 2
Anita Boven – Feb 3
Sandra Bos – Feb 5
Jacob Nonkes and Levi Passchier – Feb 7

Keep in prayer those who are confined to their homes because of winter weather. There are
people in both our congregation and community who experience loneliness as the winter
passes. Let's keep them in prayer, and when we have a moment, perhaps we can stop by
for a short visit.

We remember those who work in the legal system, judges, lawyers, clerks and all the rest.
God has blessed us with a fair and just legal system in Canada, so let us be thankful for his
gift and keep in prayer those who make it fair for all of us.
