It's COVID-19 and Flu Season

Dear Holly Presbyterian Family:
A gentle reminder as we enter the season of flu and colds, as well as the continuing challenge of Covid,
we wanted to reach out and urge everyone in our congregation to continue to exercise
the best care for one another by following suggested guidelines. We navigated the first two winters of
Covid with excellence. Let us continue in that spirit in our care for each other.

Prayers During these Difficult times:
Please O Lord our God. We come to you to admit our sins which are too many to number. We have not loved you faithfully above all else. We have turned away from the overwhelming needs of many others. We have allowed chaos, corruption, and selfishness around and within us to discourage us. These challenges have weakened our faith. We turn now to seek forgiveness. Lead us back to become true servants. Help us purify our thoughts and focus on righteousness. Let us surrender to His will and know we are forgiven. We ask this in the name of our Lord, Jesus. Amen.

Prayers For Peace and Comfort For ...

  • The family and friends of Robert DeHaven, brother of Rev. Dr. Sharlyn DeHaven Gates.
  • The family and friends of Jack L. Cook, father of Randy and Broady Cook.
  • The family and friends of Roger Montreuil.

Prayers For Healing, Peace and Comfort For ...

  • Tom Schettling, who is having knee surgery February 1st and for his recovery; Rev. Dr. Ray Knudsen, who is in rehab for his knee; Gene Stevens; Pete Olson (Carlee Ramirez's brother), who continues to battle colon cancer; Steve in Florida (Friend of Cathy & Bob Killewald), who has stage 4 bladder cancer; Jim Killewald (Bob & Cathie’s son), who is in a lot of pain after his car accident.

Prayers For Those Suffering From Natural And Man-made
Disasters ...

  • Those affected by the mud slides and rain in California.
  • Those affected by the school shootings.
  • The families of the victims and those affected by Winter Storm Elliot and Hurricanes Ian and Nicole.

Missions

"In The Beginning" Baby Pantry
The "In the Beginning” Baby Pantry" is open at the Holly Presbyterian Church on 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 10 a.m. until 12:00 noon. There will be clothing, diapers, and toiletries available for children.

We need workers. There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex. New workers are welcome, and will be paired up with those who have worked before. If you would like to help, please see Cathy or Donna.

Masks are now optional for fully vaccinated individuals per CDC recommendation. Children 5 and under are not required to wear masks.




Prayers For Our Missionary Families
The Holly Presbyterian Church supports two missionary families as part of our ongoing outreach to the world: the Keefer family (serving Christ through their Athletes in Action ministry at U of M in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the Iobst family (serving Christ through the Operation Transit ministry in Paris, France).  We are called to act as the hands and feet of Christ in our world, and because we cannot all serve in full time ministry, we offer our support financially, and spiritually, to those who do. Please pray for these families and consider sending them a note or e-mail of encouragement.
