Bontempo continues to be inspired by Friends congregation

With a tough battle ahead of her, Pastor Nancy Bontempo knows she will get by with a little help from her members at Friends Community Church in Sturgeon Bay. Last month, Bontempo was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She chose to get treatments done in Chicago but worried about who would carry the load during the week when she is gone. One by one, bible study sessions and prayer meetings have been picked up by members of the small congregation to help take some of the stress off of Bontempo. She says she feels very blessed to have so many caring members that call Friends Community Church home.

Bontempo says she has guest celebrants lined up this summer just in case the treatments do not go well, but she does plan on taking up the pulpit every Sunday while she battles cancer.
