September’s Benevolent Offering:
In the wake of the recent hurricanes that have ravaged Houston, Florida, and
other parts of the Southeast we are changing our Magnifying Our Mission
cause from the The Pregnancy Center of Clinton, IA, to the Global Mission
Development and Engagement of the RCA which is a hands-on disaster relief
ministry through our denomination working to help displaced people, clean
up and to show and share the love of Christ for those who have suffered
tragic loss. We will return to The Pregnancy Center as our Mission cause

for Sept. 20:
Spaghetti & Meatballs
I want to thank everyone for your prayers, cards, phone
calls and words of encouragement as I was recovering
from my cancer surgeries, both in June and August. I
so appreciate your concerns and thoughtfulness. At this
point, my oncologist and surgeons say I’m cancer free
and no chemo treatments are necessary. Thanks be to
God! He is s-o-o-o Good!
you, the Emmanuel family. As our mom, grandmother and wife
enters the Windsor Manor Memory Care facility, it is important for us
to recognize the many who “stepped up” during the last very difficult
months. Lest we miss someone, we will not name names – you know
who you are and God does too. All us instead to list some of the
wonderful gifts you have shared with us: Food, visits, help building a
garage, flowers, moving, food, telephone calls, music, storage, food,
staying with Norma so Denny could attend Worship, food (mysterious
apple pie lady), caring & supportive comments, hugs and most of all
prayers. Oh, did I mention FOOD?!
We will continue to covet your prayers and support as we enter a new
phase of normal and care for our precious gift from God.
God bless you all! Denny, Heather, Heidi, Hilary & families
| No matter who you are…you are loved.
No matter what you have done…Christ died for you.
We are a hospital for sinners, not a haven for saints.
We are glad you are here!
