Durham Prayer Breakfast gathered on January 21st, 2020 at the Grant County Senior Center for a lovely breakfast. Our hostesses were Carlotta Barnes & Sandy Howard. The devotion was brought by Catherine Fowler. We had 10 in attendance this month and welcomed Cheryl Moyer to the group. We would really enjoy seeing more of you if you would like to join us. We signed and sent 8 ‘Thinking of You’ cards and 5 ‘Sympathy’ cards. We received a love gift of $49.00 for the month of January. You are invited to our next breakfast which will be on February 18th at 7:00 a.m. at the Grant Co Senior Center. The devotions will be brought by Pastor Kelly. Our hostesses will be Carol Annis and Cheryl Moyer. Please join us as we gather together to worship the Lord with fellowship and a nice breakfast. A great way to start the day – Praising Our Lord.
KANSAS DISCIPLES WOMEN
