Toledo First Headline News | June 15, 2023


Greetings, church family,

BIBLE ENCOURAGEMENT (An Ode To Fathers): "So he got up and went to his father. ‘But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him, and kissed him.’ (Luke 15:20) 

APPRECIATION: Thank you to all who helped make our international sabbath a blast! 

NORTHWOOD: Please keep our sister congregation Northwood in prayer. Four Bible workers arrive tomorrow and will begin following up on over 100 requests for Bible studies in preparation for their evangelism series at the end of July.

BUSY JULY: Several items are coming up in July; please take note of it in the graphic below. A big highlight is that from July 14-15, we will have our Building Healthy Families weekend with Drs. David and Beverly Sedlacek from Andrews University. We encourage you to attend. 

PERSONAL WITNESSING: Keep praying for those on your prayer bookmark, and follow the tips on the bookmark to evangelize to them.
