- Praise God also for the new people we are meeting on Sundays!
- For an awesome Vacation Bible School - we had over 40 children that heard the Good News of Jesus!
- Praise that we hired two new part-time leadership team members - Children's Minister & Next Generation Minister
- For the impact our interns (Lilly & Thomas) are making
- For the opportunity Jess & I (Paul) had to spend time with IOP city council members who accepted our invitation to view the movie Emanuel, about the Charleston shooting, it was moving and packed with the redemptive message of forgiveness in Christ

Would you pray...
