Prayer Requests:

    • Babel Family: Many have lovingly asked how they may help support the Babel family. In order to best meet their dietary needs right now, we are going to serve them with gift cards for meals. This will allow them some flexibility in what they order. There are currently 4 adults at home including Alleyah. We realize their needs may change and we will update things accordingly. eGift cards can be emailed to Robby and Bernice at RBBabel97@gmail.com (2 B's). The Babels also welcome you to visit their home on Fridays between 12pm-4pm. In order to safeguard Alleyah, it is requested that only those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 visit at this time. The family also asks that only one visit be made in a day with a maximum of two people at a time. Below is the Meal Train link to sign up to send gift cards as well as the Sign UP Genius link for visitations. If you have any questions you can contact Howard Williams: 201-970-4205, HKHW@MSN.com.
