I just got this email from Kevin Slatton.

Our receptionist is in desperate need of housing. This family of five is looking for a home or apartment to rent starting August 1. Their current landlord is selling and they have to move rapidly. Please get the word out if you could...

If you have any resources, contact Kevin Slatton at

Just got this from Janet Otts:

I spoke with Stars and Strikes and they have room for more teams for the Thursday Night Bowling League. The number of weeks is for 16 weeks starting with the first game on Thursday, August 13 at 7:00. The First League meeting is Thursday, August 6 at 7:00.

It would cost approximately $15.00 per person per week and run for 16 weeks. We must have at least 4 people to bowl every Thursday night, but it doesn’t always have to be the same four. We can have alternates. If we have enough people interested, I would be more than happy to make up a schedule or if we have enough people that want to commit to bowling every Thursday, then we can have the alternates as stand-bys in case one the regular folks has a conflict. Or who knows, we may have enough to make up two 4-person teams!

Contact Janet Otts if you are interested!

Update to Prayer Request

Just spoke to Brooks again and since the praying started, the bleeding stopped and her hemoglobin count went up dramatically. In fact, they are releasing Sherri as I write this. She will still have the test on Monday, but for now things are looking much better.

Brooks and Sherri thank you all for the prayers.

Prayer Request

Just got this message from Jan Abernathy.

Hi all,

I just hung up the phone with Brooks Schoolcraft and he asked for prayer for Sherri. She is in the hospital there because she began losing blood somewhere in her GI tract. They haven't found the source of the blood loss yet. She has had two blood transfusions and an endoscopy (a tube down the throat into the stomach. It was negative).

She will be in the hospital until she is stablized. They plan a colonoscopy on Monday. Brooks promised to keep me informed, but asked that prayer be in place ASAP.

She is at in room 753 at:

McLeod Regional Medical Center
555 E Cheves Street
Florence, SC 29506-2606


Please keep her in your prayers.

God bless,

Bible Study Break

Hey everyone,

Just a note on the Wednesday Night Bible Study.

We've experienced some lower numbers recently, due to changes in people's schedules, summer travel, etc. So, for the next few weeks, we're going to cancel the Bible Study and take a break.

HOWEVER, we are planning on doing a special study when we get back on the concept of Faith and Faithfulness, specifically, what does it mean to have the kind of biblical faith that we read in the heroes of the Bible, but in our context?

As the time approaches, we will be giving more information about dates, topics, etc. But be looking forward to an enlightening study of the topic of Faith!
