Fighting Cancer

Lynette Jennings

Lynette has just started chemo treatments for lymphoma.  She will be doing chemo for about 3 months.

Recent Hospitalization

Gary Biancini

Update 3/23/21 Gary Biancini is home but still struggling with his recovery.  He is having trouble with swallowing and keeping food down.  His wife, Margie, is doing well and says that meals would not be all that helpful now, but she continues to ask us to pray for his recovery.

Sarah Loos

UPDATE 3/23/21 It has been confirmed that Sarah has Multiple Sclerosis.  She will start medication for that soon and is already learning what triggers to avoid and how to deal with the symptoms she has now.  Please continue to pray for her and Brian.

Special Opportunity

Julia McNamee

UPDATE 3/1/21.  Julia continues to struggle with her chronic respiratory issues.  She has a new doctor and is doing some better, actually gaining some weight and strength! Pete is doing well but could use some help with meals (although he says he has it under control). Please consider taking a meal and spending some time talking with Pete. Do not expect to see Julia as she is very susceptible to getting sick. More details in the meal registry link:

Janice Koncikowski

Janis is suffering from dementia and Ed has reached out and asked for help.  They moved to Hickory NC last year to be closer to her daughter who is assisting with her care. If you knew Janis, you remember she was quite the conversationalist. She can no longer carry on a conversation without a lot of frustration as she can not come up with the words.  Would you please consider sending a card of encouragement to her? Ed says she loves to receive cards and I know it would be a blessing to her.  Please pray for Ed as well as he adjusts to taking care of her.  Their address is:
