Pine Grove Happenings 7/12/2021

Sunday, July 11 Joys:
Nancy A. Burleson – It is a blessing to be back with you here at church!
David Odell – Kathy and I had our 27th Anniversary and we had a wonderful trip!
Kathy Odell – I traveled 9,992 miles with this man and we still celebrated an anniversary when we got back!
Pastor Ron – Our son Jonathan has been approved for the transplant program at Duke!  Please keep praying for him!
Pastor Ron – VBS is a great joy and installment three is happening tonight!
Another joy – Regarding our outreach plans, Davey had suggested we give the new Mom’s at Atrium Stanly a gift when they have a baby.  The David Hinson Endowment Foundation met last week and all agreed to give a donation to support that cause. The hospital accepted our plan and we are now giving a Swaddling blanket and Mom’s book to each new Mom!

Jonathan Hartman
Alice Alimonti – David’s Mom 
Terry Bennett – Kathy’s 1st Cousin
