Chip Clark for the $450 raised by Team First Baptist (Chip and Charlie Clark, Alan Plessinger and Pastro Gregory) for the Movember Foundation for men’s health.

For the Lucille and family and friends of Bob Towner as they continue to mourn his death.
Pastor Rick for his sister, Charlotte Lanier, in Boise, ID, who is recovering from successful surgery to remove a large, benign tumor from her brain; Thelma Parodi who returned home on Tuesday under hospice care.
