Prayer Concerns 6-22-15: 

Please add the Riverside UMC and community to your prayer list.

Many of the members of Riverside UMC have not been able to attend services for about 5 weeks now. Many of the homes in Riverside have water up to the homes and all in the streets making it very difficult to get out of their homes. On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week a POD will be set up at Riverside UMC where the Red Cross and Walker County Management and the Fire Dept. will provide Water, Meals, MREs and Cleaning supplies to be distributed.

 Prayers for encouragement and God's presence are requested.

 Please include all the Counselors, Workers and Kids that are at Lakeview Camp this week in your prayers. This is such a great opportunity for each one to come away closer to Christ!

 The father of Cindy Broyles (spouse of Dr. Keith Broyles of Diboll UMC) recently passed away.

 Rev. John & Pat Bingham (Retired pastor in Nacogdoches) were in an auto wreck on June 20th. Please keep them both in your prayers for healing.

 Rev. Lynn Lowe (pastor of St. Paul's in Henderson & Allison's Chapel) for healing.

 Ann Austin (spouse of Warren Austin of Riverside UMC) for healing .

 Vernell Bonner and their family at the death of Rev. Bud Bonner (Retired pastor in Lufkin).

 The Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC and all those families who lost loved ones.
