1.We have no choice but to cancel our normal Maundy Thursday service. We encountered some scheduling conflicts with the VFW.

The Crosswalk will go ahead as planned.

2. Also, congratulations to Mike Foster who has graciously agreed to join the leadership of Castle Christian. Mike has always been dependable and he's full of fresh ideas. Thanks, Mike, for taking on this new responsibility. We all love you.

3. Barbara Chapman is now spending time in room 100 at the Cumming Nursing Center (2775 Castleberry Road) for her rehab.

Update on Barbara

We understand Barbara suffered a pretty severe break in her arm. Her shoulder is also out of joint. At this point, they're going to keep her in the hospital for a couple of more days and then she'll be released to rehab. We don't know for how long she'll be in rehab.

Please remember Barbara in your prayers. We'll post updates when we can.

Message from Bill

When I left church this morning I had a text from my dad that my Uncle Horace, Mom’s brother, had died around 9:45 this morning. Though expected, it’s never easy. Horace was a visionary. He founded and ran Camp Chatahooche in Roswell for about 30 years. He also founded NOC (Natahala Outdoor Center), one of the largest river outfitters in the world. He was also a seminary graduate from Union Theolohical Seminary in Richmond, VA. These are a few of the things he did. He was a very gentle man with a great sense of humor. We’ll miss Uncle Horace.

Children, please remember to move your clocks forward tonight. If you don't you will miss all of the service and you'll have to sing by yourself and preach to yourself and call Ben when you're done so he can come and lock up. HAHA

Immediate Prayer Request

Sorry all. I'm having issues with the blog delivery and I sent this out several hours ago. I, personally, have not received the post so I'm sending it out again. If you get it twice, just pray twice. Thanks - Jan

We've just heard from Gayle and Damian has been admitted to the hospital for double pneumonia. He's here at Northside Forsyth, but we don't have a room number yet. He's on antibiotics and oxygen.

Gayle sounds pretty congested herself so a prayer or two for her is also in order. She's been at the hospital all day and is exhausted.

We will share more information as it becomes available. Please pray for our brother and sister in Christ. They are a lovely couple and a big part of Castle.

Thanks all.

If this goes out, please ignore it. I'm trying to figure out how I can get blogs out faster. Thanks, folks. - Jan

From Bill and Marcie

Castle Family,

Yesterday was a banner day for me; one of the more significant days in my life. Words are inadequate to express how much I appreciate and love you all for a wonderful ordination service. You have been a source of healing and restoration for me for the past several years and yesterday was a huge milestone. I am truly honored to be your pastor.

Marcie and I, also, want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your warm and generous welcome to Jack and Marsha. They were blown away by the love you expressed to them the past two weeks. Thank you for your appreciation for the music they played yesterday. It meant so much to them to play. It was extremely meaningful to Marcie, her mother, and, me, as well.

With Much Love,

Bill & Marcie
