Dear Church Family,

Mark and Sheila will be back with us soon—and we’d love your help welcoming them home! Read on…

Yesterday I was able to inform you of the mild stroke Mark Beeson suffered on Tuesday of this week, while leading a group from Granger Community Church on a tour of the early days of the New Testament Church.

The good news continues. While Mark is still challenged with double vision, he is strong and—as you can imagine—ready to be home! Mark has undergone an additional MRI since Thursday’s update, and all is clear. Your prayers matter!

Because of one final test, which cannot be scheduled until Monday, the Beeson’s return is delayed until mid-week. You might be comforted to know that Mark’s brother and sister-in-law will be joining them soon, so they won’t be alone.

Now, here’s where you come in. This weekend at all services on each campus, we’re inviting you to stop by a camera after the service you attend to offer a greeting to Mark and Sheila. Our whiz-bang video team will put it all together and present a DVD for them to watch as they settle back at home in a few days.

Until we gather this weekend, keep praying. Pray for the medical team caring for Mark. Pray for our friends who’ve been touring Italy, as they return Sunday. Pray for Mark and Sheila as they make their way back to the states in a few days.

And be in service this weekend to be part of sending a special video message to the Beesons! We’ll continue with week five in our Christian Atheist series, discovering the good life in the Ten Commandments. Together, we’ll each take our next step toward Christ.

Mark Waltz, Executive Pastor, Granger Community Church

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:3-6
