THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT NEW BEGINNINGS FOR YOUR PRAYERS, your support, your condolences, and your acts of kindness expressed toward Mary Ellen and Harold Lawler’s family. This has been a difficult time for all of us, but you have been tremendous in supporting us and in sharing the love of Christ. Truly Christ is in you! The Lord bless all of you. Kathi, Sallie, and their families

TEN MEMBERS OF NBLC LEAVE FOR A MISSION TRIP TO GRAND RAPIDS, MI NEXT SUNDAY FOLLOWING WORSHIP.

We ask that you help us by:
• Praying that we are a blessing to the community and for safe travel for us.
• Part of our trip is a food drive. Please consider making a donation so that when we get there we can purchase food for a local food pantry. You may put your donation in the offering today or next Sunday.

Thank you for your prayers and support, Kinzy Buhrman, Laura, Janie, Lydia and Joey Magyar, Gary, Bobbie, Diane and Lauren Schnitkey, and Katie Tollakson.
