If one member suffers, everyone suffers with it. If a member is honored, all rejoice with it.
— 1 Corinthians 12:26
We have so many reasons to rejoice. That’s one of the most important things we can do as a community, as a family.
And other times, we mourn.
I needed to share with you about two people who have died.
Guy McCollum died on Monday, leaving behind a loving wife, Jacque, and his dear 7-year-old son, Jackson.
Jacque and Jackson need all the love, support, and prayers we can give them.
As soon as I find out information about the service for Guy I will let you know.
And some of you may have already heard that our preschool music teacher — Sandy Ritthaler (Ms. Sandy) — also died on Monday.
Many of your children came up through our preschool and know her personally.
Ms. Sandy’s memorial service will be at 3:00 pm this Saturday in the Sanctuary.
I’m so sorry to have to share so much sad news. But I knew you would want to know.
It’s for times like these that ours friends need to know we’re here for them.
And if you ever feel your child is having a hard time working through things, I’m here.
