Family Prayers

Please keep Rixford Derby and his family in your prayers as they move forward without Dorothy in their lives. Dorothy was a former member of our church choir.

Rev. Robert Wilson, minister of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is in our thoughts and prayers as he mourns the loss of his mother, Barb.

We also keep the family of Clarence and Peggy Graansma in our thoughts and prayers as they move forward after the passing of Clarence’s father, Folkert Graansma.
