In this past week, our church has lost a dear and loved member, Sharon Wilkins. Sharon was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother. She was a vital part of our prayer team, offering thoughtful prayers for our congregation. Peter started our service, acknowledging our grief and sadness, our dependance on our Good Shepherd to give us hope and comfort.
Even as we mourn the loss of one member, we welcomed new members into our church family. Dean Mann did his profession of faith and he, along with Josh and Lindsay Scheurwater, Tom and Jan Blackwell, Sandra VanDonerkgoed, became new members of the MRCC. Each of them shared a few words of testimony, and we are thankful for each one of them.
