Sunday, October 11, 2020



Happy Sunday everyone!  Believe it or not, there is a little piece of the Percival church in this photo this morning.  The last of my zinnias are slowly fading away for the season but even in their faded state, they bring their own little charm.  I chose to gather some and place them in the cement pumpkin Rusty and I made.  The  church is represented in the chair which was rescued from floating in the church basement during the flood of 2011.  This photo brought to mind the following scripture.  ~ Mindy

The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever. ~ Isaiah 40:8


October 10-11
Prayers for Pastor Blaine and everyone in our congregation.
Please keep Phyllis and her family in your prayers.
Prayers for the family of Zach Freeman. He is JoAnn's stepmother's 36 year old son who passed away from brain cancer.
Prayers for the family of Kathy Chambers. She was from Thurman and passed away due to Covid-19.
Pray for Sydney, the little girl from Riverton who had heart surgery. She is having health problems again, and will undergo more tests to find out exactly what is going on.

Now for some good news!
Nancy's sister, Sandra, had a very good report from the doctors following her eye cancer surgery. The biopsy results were excellent!
Teresa Spidell is doing much better!
Kristen Handy was able to come home and is continuing physical therapy. We pray for her continual improvement.
Lynn Handy is home now! We pray that he will continue to improve and that God will give Barb the strength she needs to be his caretaker.
We praise and thank God for all these answered prayers!

Birthday greetings to Jacob Raymond and Charlie Bohlen on the 15th.
Belated best wishes to Jim and Donna Glenn as they celebrated their anniversary on October 1.


The videos this week were recorded in grain bins! Hopefully, these bins are being filled with grain now instead of music! 

Down To The River To Pray

What A Friend We Have In Jesus 


 Looking through past photos of church and church gatherings, I thought it might be nice to share one or two every Sunday, calling it, "Captured Moments from the Past."
Here's today's captured moments..


 Nancy Jewel and Nancy Newlon helped Ardis Rogers celebrate her 95th birthday.  Nancy Jewel, who use to live in Percival, invited Ardis and Nancy to her home in Omaha for lunch.  The two Nancys sang happy birthday to Ardis and ended by singing how old are you.  Ardis sang an answer, too d--- old!!!!


Two missions were suggested to me recently.  Mindy Raymond suggested Ellie Baucom.  Ellie was Phyllis Layman's niece's daughter who passed away due to a tragic accident.  Jerry Birkby suggested the Smile Train.  The Percival church board sent $250.00 to the Smile Train.  The Great Western Bank in Sidney was collecting money for Ellie's mother, Jessica Betts to help with funeral expenses for Ellie.  $100.00 was sent to this mission.

If you have a mission suggestion, contact any member of the church board.

Thanks, Nancy


The church received the following thank you from the Arnold Spears family 


 Our beautiful maple tree on this wonderful October morning! Most of the fields around my house have been harvested.  Jan is moving right along despite several breakdowns. ~ Mary Zach


Percy's Tidbit

Man says show me and I'll trust you.  God says trust me and I'll show you.


Wishing you peace and contentment as a new week begins...
