The Design Team is looking for helpers to make easy decorations for Fall and Christmas. Most items can be taken home and completed on ones own time. If you can use scissors you're a perfect helper!! Please text Kim James at 704-345-5653
Daniel Loyd: Please pray for Daniel. He recently suffered a major stroke and is in the hospital. Daniel is Michelle Nieves' father.
Byron York: Please pray for Byron and his kidney stone procedure.
Elizabeth Pixley: Please pray for Elizabeth. Her heart is not strong enough to support a pump device. Her best bet right now is to get on the heart transplant list. She's in the cardiac ICU at CMC Main (Rm 9203). Her new number is 704-446-3462. If anyone calls, please do not ask many questions. She's still trying to process the situation, is weak and just needs some encouragement. Visitors are allowed, but please call and make sure she is up for it first. Please ask everyone to pray for her comfort (physical and emotional) and for peace. Also pray for the medical team that is caring for her needs. Elizabeth is Tammica Dowd's Mom
