Noon Meeting News – September 19, 2017 – President’s Awards and Check Presentation to Dayton Children’s Hospital

Phather Phil’s Prayer

This week – instead of leading our prayer – Phather Phil is in need of our prayers…  

Phather Phil had a biopsy on his bladder Monday and is home resting.  We hope to see him soon with prayers for better days. Bob Burkman read the prayer from the Phather Phil Prayer Book it was one of Phil’s, with an addition of a prayer for Phil himself.
