  • Ron Brown's sister, Bonnie, passed away peacefully this week, full of faith in Jesus.
  • Remember others who have lost loved ones recently: Justin Griggs & Amanda Dover (his mother, Lori, and her grandfather, Verl) and Manuel & Karen Madrid.
  • Pray for health and peace for: Paulie Romero, Ron Froese (back/leg), Michelle Perez, Brian Willems, Al Suderman, and Mary Salazar
  • Bruce Smith has a broken rib. Pray that he heals and avoids a lung infection like pneumonia, which often accompany such injuries.
  • Praise the Lord that Kristel Salazar's coworker, Ricardo, has been declared cancer-free!
  • Ron Froese's sister-in-law, Garinel, has bone cancer. She lives in Missouri.
  • Remember others fighting cancer or awaiting diagnosis or treatment: Kristel Salazar, Eugene Enns, Carolina Coralles, Glen Zimmerman, Lanisha Washington. 
  • Pray for our CELEBRATE RECOVERY team - Ministry Leader Brian Willems, Nacho & Dalia Garcia, Veronica Stalis, Marcia Sawatkzy, and Mari Vitelli. They are finishing 2 years of service this June and are in the process of training up new leaders to carry the ministry forward. Praise God for the CR kitchen team (Bruce & Laurel Smith and volunteers) and the CR worship team (Christine Willems, Misty Hernandez, Janice Hoy, Brenda Clemmer, and Zach Clemmer on keys). Especially pray for a new team of leaders to offer Celebrate Recovery to children (Celebration Station) and teens (The Landing).
  • Pray for our pastoral transition. The Elders are forming a search committee with Ken Sawatzky from the Trustees. 
  • Pray for District Minister Jordan Ringhofer and family, as well as 20 of our sister churches in Northern California, Oregon, Utah, and Washington (including Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, Ethiopian, and English language churches, and 5 church plants)!
  • Continue praying for an end to violence in Israel and Gaza, as well as in Russia and Ukraine, Yemen and the wider conflict in the Gulf States and the Middle East. 
  • Thank the Lord for the rain and snow in our valley and mountains, and pray for safety for many in our state who have been affected by flooding, mudslides, and power outages.
