“Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, 'Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.'”
— Luke 18:15-17 ESV
If you have not yet heard, we have lost some very special members to death recently. Jerry Ross, Elizabeth Young (Elisabeth Magee’s mother), Ray and Patricia McIntyre transitioned to their forever home with the Lord. Until we go to join them, let's do all we can to support their families during these difficult days and to honor their lives by finishing our faith race well. Let us remember "For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.” Hebrews 13:14
