RAY SCHOEN: Ray Schoen, husband of Arden Schoen, had a stroke on Tuesday, June 26. He received care at Memorial Hospital and is now at New England Rehab. He will be there for several days, recovering and receiving treatment and support. At this time, the family asks for prayers, and will update the community if further help is needed. Visitors to the rehab are not suggested at this time, but we will keep everyone posted.

DEANA BOTSFORD: Daughter of Judy & Bill Botsford, is staying with family in Moltonborough as she recovers from a stroke. Please continue to hold the family in your prayers, as they express gratitude for her returning wellness and remain vigilant for her wellbeing.

If you’re aware of anyone who is urgently in need of prayer or a pastoral care visit, please let Rev Gail Pomeroy Doktor know by phone (978.273.0308) or email (gaildoktor@mac.com), so we can make sure people are receiving support and attention. Thanks so much.
