REJOICE

We rejoice with the angels over the birth of a new brother. Matthew Weeks, a resident of His Way, was baptized this morning (October 28th). Please welcome and encourage our newest brother.

PRAYER REQUESTS

  Debbie Cole: “Prayers please for my granddaughter Quincy’s best friend at University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. She is in a fight for her life in UAB, ICU, following a head-on collision with a drunk driver. The two drivers both died at the scene. Her name is Victoria Ray (18 years old). Her parents came from Texas to be with her. Multiple broken bones throughout her body and she can’t breathe without a ventilator. Unsure yet if she sustained brain injury.” (Update: “Victoria is slowly getting better. Her vent tube was removed on Sunday evening. She was able to tell her parents that she loved them. She is having constant surgeries trying to repair all the lacerations and broken bones. They have a P.O. Box set up for cards or letter of encouragement: Victoria Ray, Melanie Ray, and Kevin Ray, c/o Misty Haynes, P.O. Box 122, Gardendale, AL 35071.)

  Robbie Griffin:Please pray for my brother, David, who has just been diagnosed with lymphoma. The prognosis is very hopeful because they have caught it so early. David is a Christian and trusts that he is in the Lord's hands. The family is hopeful, but we would appreciate any prayers. Thank you.”

  Carol Kuhn: “"Please continue to lift up Bill in prayer. His tests will happen this Tuesday." (Update from Bill and Carol: “Please send our thanks to all who prayed for Bill. Tests came out good!!! Praising God!!!”)

  Jim and LaVonne Norville continue to ask for prayers for their friend, Daniel Hamm. They have found two light colored spots on his brain with a CT scan. The spots are cancer. They are going to be giving him a new kind of chemo. He is definitely getting worse.

  Grant Ralph: “Work was very stressful Saturday night which has made me cry this morning plus seeing brothers that I haven’t seen in weeks. Please pray that God will strengthen me more and more so that I can face stressful work-days more successfully.”

  Our Shut-ins: Amelia Biser, Jamie Cole, James Hall, Barbara Hopkins, Sally Mans, Johnny Powell, and Bill & Sherill Townsley.

  Mother-In-Waiting: Jessica Ogle (2/4), Allison Goad (2/7), and Caroline Lowery (3/16).

Our Missionaries: Denisovs & Rahimovs (Tomsk, Russia), Kishore Etwaroo Family (Port Kaituma, Guyana), Carlos & Linda Eguizabal (Juayua & Salcoatitan, El Salvador) & YOU (Huntsville Area)

PRESCHOOL SUNDAY CLASSES

Preschool began to meet for classes last Sunday, November 1. Please only bring your child to class if he or she is well. Teachers and helpers will plan to wear face shields or masks. Students will not be expected to wear masks. We will plan for the children to wash or sanitize their hands when they enter the class and before they eat if there is a snack. We plan to have a 4-year-old/Kindergarten class meet in the Kindergarten room, a 3’s and 2’s class meet in the 2-year-old room, and toddlers and under will meet in the toddler/childcare room. Please plan to have children to their classes and allow yourself enough time to get to the gym for class by 9:15.

Also, at assembly time, we will offer childcare for ages 2 and under in the toddler/childcare room.

If someone is interested in helping in this area, please contact Suzie Nance (256-653-2508 or drnance(-at-)hiwaay.net ).

Elementary students are expected to wear masks or face shields and to sanitize their hands upon entry. Based on parent responses, we will have two classes: a younger elementary class for 1st & 2nd graders in the Big Room and an older elementary class for 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders in the normally 2nd grade room; both classrooms are prepared for students to practice social distancing. A virtual lesson will continue to be provided on Central's Elementary Ministry Facebook group. Club Xtreme will resume class and continue their weekly Zoom meetings.
