Prayers of the People

Please remember in your prayers the people who have been on our prayer list:

  • Bonnie Butler is scheduled for knee surgery on June 9.
  • Joe Espino, artist in the Hope Beyond the Bars ministry, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently under quarantine.
  • All those at higher risk during this stay at home order: victims of domestic violence, child abuse, substance abuse, food insecurity, depression and other mental illness and the list goes on.  
  • Josh Jarrett, son of Joyce Jarratt, who has been diagnosed with kidney stones and other issues. 
  • “Duck” Spradlin, as he continues his battle with cancer.
  •   Jim Lloyd, a friend of Carol Frost and Pastor Tom, who is being
          treated for acute leukemia.
  • All of those effected by the COVID-19 pandemic—those who are ill and the medical
staff who treat them.
  •  Those whose employment is in jeopardy due to coronavirus.
  •  Those who are living behind bars with no way to socially distance to avoid the virus.
  • Those who are recovering at home and those who are their caregivers.
  • Our shut-ins who are dealing with physical pain and the pain of isolation.

The church’s finances continue to be healthy. May tithes & offerings were $1,400 less than budget, but we are ahead of budget for the year-to-date. Expenses are below budget and will continue that trend until we resume in-person worship. We continue to rely on tithes & offerings to cover operating expenses and hope that the congregation is able to make their pledged contributions. Please let Staci know if you are unable to make your pledged contributions due to unforeseen circumstances so that we can make adjustments to our financial plan.
