Faith talk Remember in prayer: Sunday morning we celebrate the Baptism of Jada Joy Commeret, daughter of Chuck and Michelle, and the

Profession of Faith of Sumte Thang.

Congratulations to Nate Sall and Sarah McClure who will be married this Saturday November 14th in Lebanon Indiana. Their home will be here in Holland.

Congratulations to Peggy Hudelson who will celebrate her 90th birthday on Saturday, November 21!

Kris Boetsmas surgery went well this past week, and she is recovering at home.

Ruth Ann DeMaster, mother of Nate DeMaster, passed away this past week after a long battle with cancer. Services will take place in Ft. Myers, FL on Nov. 21. Please keep the DeMaster family in your prayers.

Please keep Bill Slager in your prayers as he has been admitted to Holland Hospital for some medical concerns.

Please continue in prayer for my grandson Isaac. He was born with two major heart defects, which have been surgically repaired. He is currently at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Pray for Dan and Jess as they return home without him. Pray for healing of the heart and that he continues to improve and specifically that they (and Grandma) will be able to hold him soon. Right now, he has many tubes and IV'S that do not allow him to be picked up. Thank you so much for your prayers. Pam Cook

Marvin Keen, father of Bonnie and Terry DeJong and Barb and Karl Brink and grandfather of Michelle and Chuck Commeret and Julie and John Cornell, passed away on Wednesday morning, November 11.

Thank you Faith family for all the cards, meals, visits, financial support and countless prayers offered up on our behalf in the loss of our son-in-law, Jason Woolery, husband of our daughter Karen, and step-father of our grandson Raiden. With much faith we look to God for comfort, guidance, and a peace that passes all understanding in the weeks and months ahead. Dennis & Kathy Spoelman, Karen & Raiden Woolery

Deacons corner: The deacons are asking for non-perishable foods (that have not expired) for the Thanksgiving box distribution. We have blessed many families in the past and we need your help to do the same this year! Please bring your items to the table in the Fellowship Rm. By Sunday, Nov. 22.
