CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION

Ethan Heynen was admitted to Sanford Children’s Hospital Thursday night after getting hurt around the eyes while power washing. The doctors gave a positive report and discharged him on Friday to recover at home. He has a follow up on Monday with an ophthalmologist. We thank God for His care. May the Lord continue to uphold Ethan and his parents and family in this trial. Let us keep them in our prayers. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved. Psalm 62:2
We express our thanks and gratitude for all those expressions of sympathy we received though words, cards, and acts of kindness. We truly experienced the faithful communion of the saints. It is truly a gift of God’s grace. Ps. 61:1-2 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Gerald and Marilyn Brummel, Craig and Jessica Van Briesen and family
