Let's Celebrate!
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!  Psalm 150:1-6

We are so excited that Chris Lyons, local Good Samaritan will be at the 7th Annual Legacy of Love Festival. You don't want to miss this.
When Chris’s stepdad, Tommy, was first hospitalized, there were a couple of times that they did not think he would make it and he came very close to dying. Luckily he pulled through, but from then on he would be dependent on dialysis or a transplant to continue living. On the way home from visiting Tommy in November 2017, Chris brought up the idea of being his donor. He asked his wife, Holly what her thoughts were, and told her he would not do it if she did not want him to. She told him he was the only one that could make that decision and that he needed to pray about it and do what he felt led to do. Holly says she can’t even come close to finding the words to describe how proud she is of him. That he is the most loving, selfless person she knows. She said she was not one bit surprised that he decided to be a living donor for Tommy. That it never crossed his mind not to do it. It is the most Christ like thing a person can do for someone else, and I hope it inspires more people to do the same. Chris and Holly have two daughters, Harper and Hayden. They live in Samantha
