Great are the works of the Lord;

    they are pondered by all who delight in them.

Glorious and majestic are his deeds,

He has caused his wonders to be remembered;

    the Lord is gracious and compassionate. ~Psalm 111:2-4

We give thanks for the life of Lauren Everly, as this night she has gone to her eternal home. We are pleased for Lauren, yet mourn with Walt, Erin, Brian, and Hallie.

“Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

We ask for prayers this evening for Lauren Everly and her family as Lauren’s health seems to be declining.  We rejoice that she is ready to transition to her eternal home, yet we are not ready to say good-bye.  We are grateful for Lauren, for all she continues to mean to so many of us.  We pray for God’s will to be done, and for peace for Lauren, Walt and their family.

May God grant us strength to let go and to trust in God’s great plan.  Please continue to lift the Everly family in prayer this night. 


“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”  (Revelation 21:3-4)

Dear Friends,

Please continue prayers or Pat Elick. Pat had finished her radiation treatment on 12/3 but a scan showed a tiny nodule so she had the option of just watching or having more radiation. She completed 10 more treatments by 12/29 and is feeling “pretty good” at this time.
