We were missing several folks due to traveling, company, etc, hopefully all will be back after the holidays. We continue to add many to our prayer concern list. We were glad to have visitors in our morning service, please feel welcome to come again.
Brother Ric and Lisa were returning their daughter to her home in Texas, so we were happy to have Brother Richard Potter and family with us in both services. The message was about the Samaritan women, a familiar lesson, but we can always learn something new if we open our hearts.
