Church Family Concerns, Joys & News

  • Elizabeth McElhanon is doing very well following her surgery last week and is on a speedy road to recovery. She is thankful for all of our cards and prayers.
  • Nettie Patterson has been in the hospital with her recurrent back pain.
  • Jimmy Peeples’ friend, Melissa, for whom we have prayed during her difficult pregnancy, delivered by C-section last week. Sadly, after a brief time with her beautiful baby, the infant passed away. Jimmy reports that her strong faith uplifts her and asks for our continued prayer as the family copes with the loss.
  • Continually hold Rev. Melinda McDonald in prayer as she makes preparation to guide our congregation through its journey over the next couple of years. Also, remember her husband, Eric, in prayer. It will be a significant adjustment for him too as he remains with his job in Spartanburg while Melinda is here with us the greater part of each week beginning February 11.
  • Thank you, Church, for helping Kayla Lee to have a wonderful graduation celebration this past Sunday!
