2 Timothy 2:14-26


How Can I Keep From Singing
Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor
Nothing But the Blood
There Is a Fountain Filled With Blood
Christ is Mine Forevermore

Missions Update


Jim and Joyce White - Camp Nathaneal in Kentucky
Praise God for the work of the camp and the beacon of hope and light it is for the community that has been hard hit by the health crisis, the economic crisis, and the racial tensions. Pray God continues to keep the camp staff and the White’s family healthy. They have all avoided the virus and been well. Continue to pray for Joyce’s health and relief from pain as she ministers at home, at camp, and in her community. Pray for Jim as they have several major building projects, including a new barn, he is working to complete at the camp.
