Welcome
I remain confident of this; I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the
Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the
Lord (Ps. 27: 13-14). We serve a faithful God who promises good things to those who love Him. Look for the ways that God is working faithfully in your life. The good news is that Christ reconciles us to
the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy and be in right relationship with Him. Let us put our trust in Him, Praise Him and surrender our lives to Him more fully today.

To my church family

In the most helpless of moments you realize how
many loving and compassionate people you know
and call friends. During the worst hours of my life
those friends were there to pick me up.
You all showed your caring and kindness during the viewing and memorial service. Our family was
amazed at the many people who came despite the
bad weather, who paid their respects, set up the
service and did everything else that had to be done,
from reading scriptures to music, to shoveling the
snow outside the doors, to setting up and serving themeal afterward. It seemed like an army of angels just showing up to take care of things.  I heard many
compliments on the beautiful service you helped us
put together and on the delicious meal afterward.
Many of our non-church friends and family who
came had never seen anything like it and were awedat what you all pulled together in a short amount of
time. My family and I are deeply grateful at such an
outpouring of your love for us. I pray that all the
blessing you poured out on us will be returned
manifold.
 
Bill loved our church and our congregation. When he started getting much more confused and just wanted to be home, he still never missed church. As soon as I told him it was Sunday and we were going to church, he was willing to get ready. When he could no longer focus on the sermons or understand what was going on, the music and hymns still captivated him and he swayed to the sounds in his seat. I am truly grateful
that he was able to spend his final years on earth in our church with so many loving people.
 
A special thanks to Lynn Roll for the hard work she
put into getting everything organized and put in
place. Your dedication is amazing.

In His love with many thanks,
 
Brita
and Family
