Turning back to the community, we send a very happy welcome home to Barry Miles of Cumberland, after having surgery and spending seven weeks in the hospital. Thanks to everyone for their support, visits, calls and prayers. Please continue to keep Barry and his wife Linda in prayer.

We also say hello this week to our dear friends, Pastor Clyde and Eloise Senger.
