 love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” We pray that many kids

 will come to know Christ through their camp experience.

 praise reports, see the Prayers & Praise Line in your bulletin today.

 loving acts of kindness in the passing of our mother and

 Grandmother, Geneva Punt. Thank you for all the cards, flowers,

 and the great lunch that was also provided as well as the very

 beautiful service itself. I agree with mom's statement "What do

 people do that do not have a church family?'' All was very much

 appreciated!! ~ Jane Wierenga and Mary Score
