Hi everyone,

First, thank you for the prayers for Megan Baker. She has been released from the hospital and is back at the home.

Although she was exposed to the virus, she did not come down with it.

Second, the intercessions for this week are:

For a swift end to the pandemic

For all those who are suffering from the pandemic and for those who care for them.

For everyone sheltering in place - may this be a time of growth in closeness between family members and closeness to Jesus.
