Pastor Eric Sayler Family – Prayer Request
Many of you may be aware of the medical concerns with our pastor’s middle daughter. Your prayers are solicited as the family travels this journey of medical uncertainty. Join the “Team Julianna – Praying for a Cure” Facebook group. If you do not “do” Facebook, we will try to keep you up-dated through communication at church.
Though the journey may not be known, the destination is clear, The Kingdom of Heaven.
If you would like to make financial donations to support the family, gifts can be given in the church offering. Please direct it to “Pastor’s Discretionary Fund”. In the memo line, Do NOT place a designation on the check other than “Pastor’s Discretionary Fund”.
Personal Cards and Letters can now be sent directly to:
P.O. Box 690, College Place, WA 99324
Cards and Letters may also be dropped off in a collection box in the church lobby or mailed to the church.
