Shirley Clough, mother of Mari Lynne Katsma moved to Marvin’s Manor assisted living in Horicon, this past week. Please pray for a smooth transition for all the family members and for Shirley as she adjusts to a new place. We hope that she will still be attending services here as she can.
Prayer and Discernment: MarshView is really in a time of prayer and discernment concerning how this ministry can best use the time, talent and resources God has blessed us with. We have been looking at how we can best serve our congregation and we are praying about what opportunities God has for us in ministry outside of our congregation, that being in our community by serving and engaging in a Gospel centered way. Please pray and seek God on this. We are all part of this ministry and we need to hear from God through your personal prayers and insights that God provides you. Talk with Pastor Dave about how you can pray, listen and engage in God’s ministry here.
