Greetings, Springs family! As we enter into another great weekend, let’s continue to remember our team in Panama as they wrap up a week in ministry and head home. Take a moment to read the update from the team below!

If you missed last Sunday’s service, be sure to check out Jerry Carlin’s message reminding us of the amazing blessings we have as a part of God’s family. This Sunday, we’ll continue our encouraging study of the prayers of Paul, focusing on a prayer found in the book of Philippians. It’s going to be another great Sunday morning of worship and teaching! We can’t wait to see you Sunday, but don’t forget all the exciting opportunities for growth and fellowship outside of Sunday mornings. Check out this week’s updates below!

News from the Panama Mission Team
Thank you for your continued prayers for our Panama Mission Team. God has been graciously at work as the medical team has provided checkups for many children who are a part of the GlobalFingerprints program. Three villages have been visited with two more to go! The Lord has also blessed our IBAC Teaching Team in their times of training with local pastors and leaders. This week's topic is biblical preaching. These ministries would not be possible without the prayers and generosity poured out through the whole Springs Church family. Thank you! And thank you for your continued prayerful support. Glory to God! --Pastor Zach
