Prayer Concerns

Current Prayer Requests of Harbor United Methodist Church

Prayers of Praise and Thanksgiving: ⁎ Our last First Friday Fish Fry on July 1st to benefit Rolling Wave Foundation was another successful evening, despite a power outage in the Harbor! Rich Bonanno / Rolling Wave pitched in too. Music provided by the WSU (Whoever Shows Up) Blue Grass Band was a bit hit. We set a record for serving 159 delicious fish meals! Frank thinks that a goal of 200 is doable! ⁎ Thank you to Anne Ku from Milton for so capably providing lovely music while Corey is in North Carolina visiting his mom. ⁎ THANKS to John and Lisa Ryan who provided a lovely setting for our Church Picnic! Everyone laughed heartily and enjoyed each other’s company ~ not to mention the delicious gourmet buffet. You are the hosts with the most! Pie Social: Friday, August 5. Kicking off Heritage Days, you can help by baking your favorite pie/s, set up Bruce Hall, cut pies, clean up, etc. It’s a treasured part of Heritage Days, and folks start lining up in anticipation of our delicious array of home baked pies and treats. Come join in the fun! ⁎ A summer Bible Study is looking at Thursday mornings. See Pastor Chris with interest.
Prayers DO work ~ Pastor Mike is feeling much better and his wife Carol does NOT need a hysterectomy! Praise God! His Recovery Church is moving to Brockton, with special gratitude to Bob Amweg for his support. ⁎ Nan and Bob’s daughter Christine is grateful that her most recent scans from Dana-Farber were clear. God is good! ⁎ From a recent Message: Faith is the crumbling of pride. ⁎ Congratulations to Andrew Ford on his graduation from U-Mass/Amherst! ⁎ Travel mercies for Inga at equine camp (first sleepover experience) and all children at sleepover summer camps, including Ella and Liam. Travel mercies too for the many summer vacationers, including Mike from PA (who enjoyed Levitate with Ian), Corey, Cindy Bearce, and Liz. Happy Trails to Beatriz Hurwitch (Joan’s friend) who’s going to live with her daughter in Spain. (She so enjoyed the Fish Fry with her St. Luke’s friends…) ⁎ The Minot Beach Cleanup yesterday afternoon (sponsored by HUMC, Scituate Beach Association and Scituate Trashed) collected an impressive amount of beach trash and enjoyed the camaraderie, as well as pizza. ⁎ It was so nice to see Ruth Marshman at worship and enjoy a mini-Erdman Preschool reunion. ⁎ The Rolling Wave collection bin is full most every day! Sue can always use help 9-12 M-F sorting and boxing up the items in the nursery.
