UPDATING THE PRAYER LIST
Please take a moment to review the prayer list to see if there are any names you’ve added that can now be removed. You can email the names to Melissa. Thank you to everyone who has already contacted her.
Starting June 1, we’re starting a new prayer list process. Every two months, the prayer list will be updated so that we make sure it stays current. We’ll include a note in The Beckford Connection for two weeks before so if there is anyone that needs to remain on the list, you can let Melissa know before the update. This will not apply to those in the military, health care workers or those at home.
IMPORTANT REGATHERING UPDATE
We’re happy to share the news that we can regather for in-person worship starting on May 23rd. Please read the letter for more information.
Thank you for sending in your pledges this month! With you’re support, we’ve continued our support of the churches and community.
You can mail current or past month’s pledges directly to the church offices.
