Dear Church Family
On this beautiful spring morning, thirty-one of us gathered to worship in person at Table of Grace.  Sam shared the announcements, led our Call to Worship, and read scripture verses from Romans 12:11-12 and Psalm 27:14.  In addition to doing an awesome job as liturgist, he also helped out the tech team this morning.  Thank you, Sam!  Cheryl performed a beautiful keyboard prelude this morning.  Thank you to Cheryl, Jim, Barb, and Hillary for your musical leadership.  Cathy shared photos and stories from yesterday's bedroom makeover for two little boys, who were delighted with their new rooms.  The two young ladies, who received bedroom makeovers three weeks ago, crafted a beautiful suncatcher for Table of Grace Church as a thank you gift for their bedrooms.  Thanks to Kelsey, Cathy, Paula, and all who helped with this rewarding ministry.  You can view the entire service (including the bedroom makeover slides) on Table of Grace's Facebook page.   You can view just the sermon on YouTube, using the link below.  
Prayer requests:
Please continue to pray for healing and recovery for Scott who remains hospitalized with COVID.  Please pray for comfort and strength for Kim and the children.
Please continue to pray for Gerri  at Elmwood Senior Living as she is treated for a blood clot.
Nancy asks for continued prayers for her friend, Holly, who will have cancer surgery tomorrow.  Please pray for God's protection for Holly and guidance for her medical team and for full recovery.
Larry asks for continued prayers for Cody, who was out of contact last week and had a recovery relapse. He needs our prayers that God will speak to his heart and guide him on a good path.
Please continue to pray for Mick, a young man for whom we have been praying.  He has had several brain procedures in preparation for major brain surgery in a few weeks.
Please keep John and Sandy's friends, Chuck and Bonnie in your prayers.  Chuck has been in nursing care for several months following complications from heart surgery.
Sylvia asks for prayers of comfort and strength for her daughter-in-law.  Her stepfather passed away and her mother is quite ill.
Please pray for all people needing organ transplants, for donors, and their families.
Helen asked for prayers for healthcare workers at Luther Square.  They have become very weary, and sometimes take a short break on our church property.  Helen spoke with them this morning.  Please pray for strength and endurance for all caregivers.
Please pray for the family and friends of Larry (Donnie's friend), who passed away yesterday.
Please pray for healing for Donnie's friend, Joe, who is recovering from jaw surgery.
Angie asked for prayers for her neighbors, whose biracial grandson was the victim of racial slurs over the weekend.  Please pray for God's peace and healing for our neighborhoods and our nation.  Please pray for victims and families devastated by mass shootings.
Please remember to add your prayers to those that remain unspoken,
We offer thanks and praise for answered prayers for Walt.  He is home from the hospital and being treated for congestive heart failure.  He is using oxygen only as needed.
I offer thanks and praise for answered prayers for my Aunt.  She has suffered blood clots and infections and we were concerned she might need further heart surgery.  Her most recent appointment  was encouraging and the antibiotics are fighting the infection.
Thanks to God for answered prayers for my cousin, Linda, whose biopsy results on her lymph node were benign.  She is still facing breast surgery, her doctor feels her prognosis is very good.
Thanks and praise that Glen is maintaining his progress.  Please keep his family in prayer.
Thank you for continued prayers for Adam and Kristy.  Adam's appointment last week showed some progress.
We have been praying for many months for Avery, a young teen who has been undergoing aggressive cancer treatment.  Praise God!  She is cancer-free!  Please keep her in prayers as she undergoes precautionary radiation treatment.  Donnie posted a short video of Avery on his Facebook page.  
Paula offered praise that Eric made a connection with the older boy at the bedroom makeover on Saturday by tossing the football back and forth in the yard as we waited for the family to leave before entering the home.  One of the things we miss (since the pandemic) is planning a fun-day for the children where they can connect with kids from TOG, while the makeover is happening.
It was a joy to see Wilma, Sheri, and Phoebe at worship today!
