Notes from September 15, 2019 

- Congratulations and best wishes to Daniel and Lauren Rohrer who were married on September 7 at Sunny Slope!

- Pastor Debra requested prayers for the family of a football player who collapsed and died on the football field during a game.

She feels that we as a nation need to work to heal these kinds of wounds that are present in our country.
