Senior Adult Ministry – Patty Farrington

 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Thank you for praying for our senior adults. This month continues with many facing challenging health issues.  Please remember them and their families especially during this Christmas season.

Please pray for those senior adults who are facing the end of life but continue to have much joy and thankfulness for all the Lord has done for them.  Please pray for family members as they provide care.

Please pray for the ministry at Westside Terrace Health and Rehab facility.  Our worship service there continues to grow.  Pray for us as we share the love of Jesus each week.  Pray that we would be very sensitive to those who are in the facility with no family to visit them.  Christmas can be a very difficult time.

Thank you for praying for our family.  We are so thankful for each prayer offered on our behalf.  Please continue to pray for the safe arrival our newest grandson in January!

We are so blessed!

Merry Christmas
