Noon Meeting News – October 3, 2017 – Community Champion Award Presented to Tiffany and Greg Moehl

Phather Phil’s Prayer

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

Phather Phil had a biopsy on his bladder recently and is home resting.  We hope to see him soon with prayers for better days. David Ladd led the club in prayer,  with an addition of a prayer for Phather Phil himself.

The Food Bank serves over 300 families in our area. Greg and Tiffany received a standing ovation.

Greg Fay introduced our speaker Sarah Williams from Hannah’s Treasure Chest. She told us they have grown and now have 65 core volunteers and serve over 5,600 families. She told us about their new diaper program and in serving basic needs they consider themselves a hand up not a handout.

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father multitasking is our way of coping with time. As youngins we were told that time was precious or as it was put “time is money.”  Help us to not waste the time saved or the money made in search for just the material things of life. As Optimists, we know the time and money we have saved by multitasking is wisely spent on the kids. We ask for your blessings on our dedication to the kids and keep us multitasking for there are a lot more kids to reach out there. Amen!
