CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION
Kurt Hoksbergen is asked to write to Gary Brummel and Christina Kooiker to Derick Grimm.
Bonnie Hoksbergen has not been taking nourishment and has been put on Hospice. She currently remains at the Rock Valley Hospital. May the Lord graciously uphold her, Don, and their family. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. (Psalm 91:9-10)
We rejoice with Greg and Rochelle Gritters (nee Kooiker) who were united in marriage this past Friday. May the Lord richly bless their marriage that it may reflect that of Christ and His church.
