We were saddened to hear of the passing of Ruth and unfortunately we will be out of town this weekend of her memorial service. Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our God of comfort and peace embrace you all with His loving arms as you remember and celebrate her life legacy. We have found these words of our Lord in song to help up through times of trouble and sorrow and we share with you: 'Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come, follow Me, and I will give you rest'.
