WHO'S INTERESTED IN THIS BIBLE STUDY???!!!
A new small group or individual Bible study is out called "Family: It's Complicated", that would pertain to many situations and families in our church! It talks about something called ACEs "Adverse Childhood Experiences" which cause people to have trouble as adults. It seems like it would be great for a small group Bible study during the week, or for any individual to do at home. Some have already expressed interest. Is there any more interest in a small group study or even individual study?

For MARY STEMLER as she is being placed in hospice care and as her health is failing quickly.
For OUR NEWLY ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THOSE WHO WERE REELECTED, that god would use them to do his will and give him glory, and that they would keep his will in mind at all time as they make decisions for the sake of his people.
