We remember our members celebrating birthdays this week
– Markie Mourey, Alex Baumann, Cheryl Bultemeyer, Bernice Caston, and Todd
Gehres. We also remember our
Pre-K teacher, Anne Hess, as well as Christine Bultemeier who teaches in the
public school. In addition, we
remember Kent Kiefer, one of our Sunday School teachers.
May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.
May the Great Physician grant health and strength to
all who are in need of His
presence in their lives. We
especially remember Hildegard Kiefer who has been transferred to Adams
County (Extended Care) Hospital for rehabilitation.
We also remember Tony & Claudia Jordan who
celebrated their first wedding anniversary last Monday, December 4.
May the Lord continue to bless this couple.
