Please ignore the Charge Conference email sent out yesterday! My ignorance of the workings of the Greater UMC has been exposed! Sorry for the confusion!

You have no doubt been aware of the military deployed here to assist the Doctors and Nurses at Kootenai Health with the recent COVID surge. What better time than Veterans' Day to say 'Thank You' for their help! A simple card or a handwritten note expressing your gratitude for their help can mean a lot to someone away from their families, and working long hours helping local hospital staff and caring for the people of our community.

Tanya Heidenreich has a point of contact at the hospital who can make sure the cards get to the right people. So you can either bring your cards to church this Sunday where they will be collected and delivered, or mail them directly to her contact:
ATTN: Justin Schorzman
Kootenai Health
2003 Kootenai Health Way
CdA ID 83814

CLICK HERE if you would like to read the Army Times article about the deployment.

A special Thank You to Tanya Heidenreich and John Townsend for making this happen!
Greg and Nancy Lewis would like prayers for Family Kubena (son Aaron's in-laws) - blessings of comfort in the loss of "Grandpa Paul".

Ginny Brown would like prayer for her daughter's friend Renee who is going through radiation treatments for breast cancer.

Dave and Karen Grindle ask prayers for the families of friends Dee Anderson and Jerry MacCluer who both passed away last week.

Continued prayers for Jim Beyer.

Continued prayers for Jim and Gerrie Van Voorhis.

Prayers for Peace, Kindness, and Understanding to prevail.

*Praise: Mary Slade is very thankful to be attending Brown Bag and worship services now that Suzanne Zabriskie and the Grindles are picking her up.

*Praise: Prayers WORK. Ginny Brown's MRI showed there is nothing to worry about. The tumor is there, but it is benign and nothing needs to be done.
Thank you for the prayers, Ginny.

If you would like to send a card but don't have an address... feel free to contact the office!

What has been the impact of COVID-19 and more than a year of lockdown on our mental, social, spiritual and physical health? What strategies can laity in leadership adopt to help us move through this continuing time of change?

Disrupted routines have created new challenges for church communities and their leadership. Research has shown that individuals across the planet are experiencing compassion fatigue and PTSD from 18 months of constant change and uncertainty. Both laity and clergy are struggling from a lack of routine and normal social experiences.

Presenters Micheal Pope, CA-NV Lay Leader, and Rev. Schuyler Rhodes, former District Superintendent from the CA-NV Conference, will review the unusual multiple stresses of our time and what we can all do to recover/maintain until we are on the other side of the pandemic.
