Anita Evanhoe has graciously volunteered to update and produce a new parish directory. If you are not currently in the directory, or if any of your information has changed, please let Anita know by email at email@example.com or by phone at 937-623-2570 or get with her at church. The directory lists name, address, phone, email, and birthday (year not required) of each family member. You may also choose to omit certain parts of that information. As a reminder, this directory is not online anywhere and we do not provide it to anyone outside of the parish. Thanks for your assistance!
Chuck Evanhoe is home from the hospital. The gall bladder procedure today went very well and he is now recovering.
O Lord, whose compassions fail not, and whose mercies are new every morning; We thank you that it has pleased you to give our brother Chuck both relief from pain and hope of renewed health. We pray that you will continue in him the good work you have begun; that, daily increasing in strength, and humbly rejoicing in your goodness, he may order his life in a way that pleases you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Just heard from Rosanne that Jeff had a cardiac conversion procedure this morning which was successful in getting his heart back into normal rhythm. Thanks be to God! He will be at the hospital for a couple more hours in recovery and will then be allowed to go home.
Almighty Father God, we bless you for your presence, your comfort, and your healing in the life of our brother Jeff. We pray that his recovery will be swift and complete and we are so eternally grateful for your lovingkindness to him and to us all. We thank you in the Name of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
Jeff Brown was admitted to Soin Medical Center this afternoon with irregular heartbeat. An attempt to shock his heart back into sinus rhythm was not successful so he has been admitted for observation and perhaps additional procedure. We should be able to provide an update on his condition tomorrow morning at church. Thank you for your prayers.
O Almighty God, the source and giver of all health, and the aid of all that turn to you; We pray for your mercy on behalf of your servant Jeff, that he may be healed of this heart infirmity. So fill his heart with faith in your love that, with calm expectancy, he may await your power working in him and gracefully receive your healing, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Don’t forget that this coming Sunday (June 26) will be our first Summer Parish Picnic. Please plan to wear “picnic clothes” to church that day and bring picnic food for your family and some to share. We will be enjoying Shelter #3 at Thomas Cloud Park on Brandt Pike. Hope to see many of your there!

We still have openings for someone to take a Sunday (or two) to share a Sunday School class with our children. We have a curriculum book you can follow which has ideas for games, stories, crafts, etc. or you can do something on your own. So far, we have filled 8 Sundays, with 6 more to go. The Sundays available are: July 3, July 10, July 17, July 24, August 14, and September 4. It’s just 45 minutes of your time, but can mean so much to our younger members. Please see Dss Candy if you can serve in this capacity.
The Wednesday Evening Prayer will be held at the church at 7:00 p.m. this week. However, because Vacation Bible School has most of the church in use, we will be meeting downstairs. Come join us to make our requests known to God and fellowship together in His presence.

From Amanda Roberts —
I talked with Dorathea Fortener yesterday and found out that she injured her eye very badly on Monday, so badly that it required 17 stitches! She said she is thankful it is her bad eye; it is swollen shut. I asked her if she would like me to pass this on to the church, and she said yes, she would welcome prayer for a good recovery.
O Almighty God, the giver of all health, and the aid of all who turn to you; We pray for strength and goodness in behalf of your daughter Dorathea, that she may be completely healed of this injury to her eye, that her sight may be completely restored, and that you would protect her from any infection or complication. We pray also that you would give her restorative rest and renew her energy and stamina that her life might continue to be to the praise of your glory. We pray these things in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen
The men of the church will meet this coming Saturday (June 18) at 7:30 at the church for a fabulous breakfast and great fellowship. All men are invited (and encouraged!) to come and join with us.
