Here is the message from Pastor Dwight for Sunday, January 24. Only the message is posted here but at the beginning of the service Dwight paid tribute to our dear friend, and fellow band member, Dr. Rachel Armstrong Thomas, who died suddenly this past week. Our hearts are heavy for missing her but one of the the immense blessings of knowing Jesus is the assurance of heaven. We know that Rachel is now face to face with her heavenly Father with no pain, no sickness, only Joy! Someone commented to leave it to Rachel to learn to play harp before she went to heaven!
As prayer was offered during the service, included in that prayer was a request that Rachel’s husband, Rob, and their children and grandchildren would sense God’s very presence and be carried by Him in the days ahead as they mourn and miss Rachel.
