Noon Meeting News – August 15, 2017 Will Cale Scholarship Winners

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, when we lose someone we know whether it is a friend or family member our heart aches at the loss. With regret we hurt because we didn’t get to tell them how much we love them or how much they have meant to us for just being them. Lord give us the wisdom to always thank another for all they have meant to us, for we never know when the last chance will be to reap the joy of giving. Amen!

Noon Meeting News – February 21, 2017 – Dan Beck – Will Cale Scholarship

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I think most everyone has seen ads on TV on insurance where they say ,”we will forgive your first accident” Knowing some of the drivers here that is a very compelling choice. Their promises pale by comparison to Yours Lord. For there are times when we are willing residents of the enemy camp. It’s then that we realize, how fortunate we are to have a God who loves us no matter what. A God that forgives us and all we have to do is ask. Help us to continue to prove we are good people
by our love and devotion to You and the Optimist kids. Amen!

Congratulations – Roy!
