Prayer Request and Scripture

This week we are praying for the residents in the Cottages and for the Environmental Services staff.

Our Scripture of the Week is Colossians 1:19-20: “For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”

Weekly Inspiration

“The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.” — Juliette Gordon Low
