 Group elder for any prayer needs.

    As a congregation, we have an opportunity to bless our missionary family, Glenn and Laura Adams, when they visit 
 us on August 18. Glenn and his son (and possibly his wife and other son if they end up coming) will need a place to 
 stay when he preaches for us that Sunday, for Saturday and possibly Sunday night.  If you are able to help, let 
 Don Vogel know.
