Bible Study

I mentioned last week that we would be taking a break from Bible Study for a while. Circumstances necessitate that I make that break an indefinite one for now. I apologize to those who benefit so much from our studies (like myself!), but I am simply not able to continue this at present.

Will keep everyone updated. Thank you.

Thanks to Everyone

Many thanks to so many of our church number who have endeavored to reach out to me and my family in our recent personal crisis. We have definitely felt loved and cared for by so many. Thank you for withholding judgment and loving all of us regardless. You all are truly the body of Christ in our community.

This has been, personally, the most terrible and testing experience of my life, and I must assume that my children are suffering the most. This has been awful, there is no other way to say it.

The events of today (Monday) have brought with them further difficulties. Because of my own emotional and even physical state this week, I have asked Kevin Slatton to preach for us this Sunday. He has agreed to do so. He always does a great job and I believe he will lift us up this Sunday.

I beg your continued prayers and support as we endure this set of circumstances. I pray for grace and forgiveness for me and Stacie as we work out the details of our issues and make the most difficult decisions.

We will keep you updated. Thank you.

In Christ,

Bible Study Break

Hey Castlers,

For two weeks we've cancelled our Wednesday Night Bible Study and, unfortunately, something unforeseeable has come up which requires me to cancel for two more weeks.

So...this Wednesday and next Wednesday (the 16th and the 23rd) we will not have our Wednesday Night Hebrews Bible Study. I apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to picking it back up on the 30th.

Prayers for the Sick in our Congregation

Hi everyone,

Let's try to keep everyone who's sick in our congregation in our prayers. There are quite a few.

Also, I got this from Debbie Whigham:

Please keep Alan (My Husband) in your prayers. He had to be admitted into the ICU last night at Northside-Forsyth Hospital. His heart rate was very high and his blood pressure almost non-existing. They found he had infected gallstones and that one might be blocking a duct in his liver causing him to be jaundice also. they do not want to do surgery because he is a high risk patient, so they are trying to treat the infection with antibiotics. Please pray for a speedy recovery! I will keep you updated.

Thanks everyone!
