The Weekly Epistle 10/12/22

Church Family, 

As you may have heard, Pastor Brian’s sister passed away on Monday morning. He asked us to include the following request in this week’s epistle.
“My sister, Brenda, passed away this morning. We are so thankful that she is finally at peace and with the Lord. We no longer have to see her suffering. It was such a long but yet short two months.
Pray for the funeral service this Saturday as I lead and that it is a testimony to the Lord.
Thanks for all your support and prayers. Our family time has been precious and helpful through this time of grief.”
–Pastor Brian
Would you just take the next few moments to pause and pray for the Greens and their family? Let’s honor Pastor Brian’s request and uphold all of them now and in the days ahead.
Thank you and blessings, 
Pastor Dan

Looking Forward
