Joy Davis, the administrator of our Northern CA Nevada Conference (NCNC) of the UCC, writes in the wake of the recent wild fires that “our church in Redding is safe, though it was close to the fire at one point. However, at least four families have lost their homes and there is great need in the area. The Redding folks feel very alone and far away. Let’s help them feel surrounded by the love of their NCNC family.” The NCNC office has already sent money and will be continuing to collect funds, and invites our community to send cards with greetings saying we are “thinking of you” and “praying for you.” Notes can be sent to: Pilgrim Congregational UCC, PO Box 993183, Redding CA 96099-3183. Thank you.

Continued prayers for Nate Mazur and family as Nate is on medical leave/vacation for the month of August.

Continued prayers of healing for Jim McVay, who is recovering from a bad fall.
