Pastor K led the service at the Satsop Methodist Church on Sunday. The Elma/Satsop choir sang two hymns, “Sorrow to Joy” and “The Love Behind the Cross.” Pastor K read the scriptures. Pastor K’s message was: “Does Prayer Make Any Difference.” My thought immediately was “yes.” Joys and concerns shared: Prayers are needed for healing for Debbie Colvin, and prayers for Linda Wilder. Joys: Bill Muhlhauser is doing very well after his hip surgery; Pastor K enjoyed the gospel music that was performed at the Aberdeen Methodist Church this past week.
Dates to remember: Sunday, April 20, come and join the sunrise service at the Satsop Cemetery at 7 a.m. A potluck breakfast at the Satsop Methodist Church follows at 8 a.m.
My thought for the week: “Wake up with a smile and go after life … Live it, enjoy it, taste it, smell it, feel it.” — Joe Knapp
