NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
PRAYERS FOR JACK
Jack Kelleher, son of Pilgrim members John and Kristen Kelleher and grandson of Dave and Marcia Runkel, was diagnosed with a glioma over the 2016 winter break. Jack is currently undergoing radiation treatment in Indianapolis for six weeks. Please keep Jack and his family in your hearts and prayers. You can learn more about Jack’s progress from the Kelleher family CaringBridge page: caringbridge.org/visit/wevegotyourbackjack.
The youth group has been united in prayer at a common time each day since learning of Jack's diagnosis. They invite the congregation to join them in prayer for Jack every night at 8:30 PM. Matthew 18:19-20 says, "When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Please join in prayer and let's use our Pilgrim Family to encircle Jack and his family in prayer.
