Please take time in the next few days to see if your family has any items in Lost and Found.  The tub with missing items may be found beside the stage on the far side of the gym.

Tomorrow, Thursday – December 14th – at 2:30 pm, all unclaimed items will be taken to Goodwill.  As always, thank you for your help!

Prayer Requests

As we go through our days, please remember the keep the following WCA families in your prayers. Also, please email Tami Butts (tbutts@wcalions.org) with updated and/or new prayer requests. It is an honor to pray for each other.

  • Please see the following message from the Kay family:  “Thank you very much for your prayers for our family.  The surgery went fine with no unexpected difficulties.  Our hope is that this repair will give Andrea significant improvement in her health.  The girls made it through the week despite a couple of bumps in the road, but nothing they could not handle.  We hope that each member of our medical team experienced the love of Jesus as they cared for and interacted with us.”
  • Thank you for continuing to pray for Mark Mills and Tara Merritt (Nathan (6th), Parker (1st)) with regards to several events that are happening in their life right now.  Tara is very thankful to report that Mark is recovering well from his thyroid surgery and her niece is making good progress after her lung transport surgery and ensuing complications.  Prayers for continued healing are much appreciated.
  • Please continue to pray for Sabrina Garcia (Noah, 11th and Jacob, 9th) and her family. Sabrina’s recovery is going very well in so many ways and the coming months long term treatment plans will be developed if needed.   Pray for her continued strengthening and her medical team as they make decisions for her future treatments.
  • Anderson Krieger (9th grade) and his family, as he continues his treatment for recurrent leukemia.  Following is Sally’s most recent FB post and prayer request:  “Anderson’s start of maintenance hasn’t been the smoothest. He’s suffering from mouth sores, nausea and aches all over due to the chemo and steroids. He hasn’t been on steroids in a few months so they are hitting him pretty hard. We would appreciate prayers for him to feel better and that he would be able to drink so he can avoid dehydration. Thanks so much!”   For the most recent updates and specific prayer needs, please follow Sally on social media.
  • Brent Weatherly and his family. You can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.

Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission, of the family.
