"I am sharing this prayer request with permission."
Kathy Hallenbeck, pastor's wife of our PHC in Grand Gorge, called me today to let us know that their son Wesley, was in a four wheeler accident a few days ago. He suffered a concussion and an ear injury (that they are concerned about). He is having a rough day. Please, pray for the
family. I know they would appreciate it.
God cares about every detail of our lives and He loves when we talk to Him about those details.

Let us not fail to take Wesley to the throne!

Another Pilgrim has made the landing safely.  Sr. Audrey Sechrest, a member of our Archdale Church, went home to be with Jesus on Friday, October 16, 2020.  She is now enjoying the presence of her Lord, the one whom she loved and lived for.

Let us especially lift her husband, Bro. Lank Sechrest, to the throne in prayer.  On February 11, 2021 they would have celebrated 70 years together in marriage.  May the God of all Grace support Bro. Sechrest, his children, grandchildren, and the rest of the family during this difficult time.  To the Sechrest family: On behalf of the Pilgrim Holiness Church, I want to extend to all of you our deepest sympathy, heartfelt love, and sincerest prayers as you travel this pathway.  Just remember, as the song writer pinned these words: "Jesus is with me my shepherd and guide.  All that I need He is there to provide.  That makes the difference, this friend by my side...Jesus is walking with me!"  May the comfort of the Holy Spirit be your portion especially now, and in the coming days.  

Pilgrims, let us surround the Sechrest family with our prayers and support at this time.

On Wednesday, October 14 , another Pilgrim reached the heavenly shore.  William A. Polmateer, a member of our Rockwood PHC congregation, breathed his last at his earthly residence only to wake up in Glory!

I have good memories over the years talking with Bill.  I remember when my wife and I were newly married and we came to the Pilgrim Ministerial Convention held that year at the newly built Pilgrim Holiness Church in Rockwood, NY.  My wife and I have fond memories those couple days as we stayed in the home of Bill Polmateer and his sister Katherine.

Bro. Polmateer will be missed by all who knew him.

Let us continue to remember the family in prayer during this difficult time.

Also remember Rev. Ken Sickler in prayer as he will be ministering to those at the funeral service on Saturday, October 17 @ 11:00 am  The service will be held at the Rockwood Pilgrim Holiness Church.  There will be a viewing preceding the service from 10 am - 11:00 am

Bro. Bob Grate for many years attended our Pilgrim Holiness Church in Linesville, PA.  He went to be with Jesus on Sunday, September 20, 2020.  Bro. Grate had a clear testimony of being saved and entirely sanctified and walking with Jesus.  May God bless his memory to all who knew him.  He attended whenever the doors were open and taught the adult Sunday School class very faithfully.

His viewing was tonight and the Funeral service is tomorrow morning at 10:00 am.  Please pray for Pastor Trevor Mills and Rev. Isaac Clark as they both will have part in the funeral service.

I just received a call from Marvin Nemier and they took his Dad, Charley Nemier to the ER yesterday and he was admitted into the Community General Hospital (now Upstate) on the south side of Syracuse.

He has a valve issue (heart) and also a lung issue.
Marv indicated that they would be keeping him and that a 'heart procedure' will need to be done. 

He asked for the church people to please pray for his Dad!

Of course, due to COVID, patients are not allowed to have visitors, which some of us know is so very difficult!
Keep Marvin Nemier, Lorie (Nemier) Pruett and their families in prayer as they support Uncle Charley from a distance.

Our God is great and more than able to give wisdom to the Doctors and Nurses and to bring healing and help to the afflicted!! We can trust Jesus!!

I will keep you all updated as I hear from Marv and Lorie.
~Dianne Wilson"

At this difficult time, let us as a Conference Family, hold Bro. Nemier up in prayer along with his family!  God knows and God cares!

Aaron Lambeth.  email: or cell: call or text 315-382-8835

I am very sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Sr. Marie Brown passed away on Saturday, September 19, 2020.  Sr. Brown was a member of our Pilgrim Holiness Church in Pierrepont Manor, NY.  We appreciate her life of faithfulness to God and her legacy that she leaves behind.  She is now enjoying her heavenly reward.  As christians we have the hope of eternal life with Jesus which is the anchor of the soul.  May we all purpose to make it to the city of God where they need no sun!

Let us lift the Brown family to the throne at this time as they grieve over the loss of their loved one.  May the Brown family experience the comfort of the blessed Holy Spirit.  May they experience the support of our Holy God as he envelops them with His everlasting arms.
