Dear Church Family,
          The beginning of this New Year has been a difficult one as we have lost three faithful members of our church family – Bea McVey; Becky Johnson; Eldon Eastridge.  The reality of death always makes its presence known (see Heb.9:27).  Although we are saddened by their loss, we are also encouraged by their gain – HEAVEN!  In fact, I am reminded of what Jesus says to us in Jn.14:1-3“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  You believe in God; believe also in me.  My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
          Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people!  We take great comfort in knowing that Bea, Becky, and Eldon were prepared for heaven.  So let us as a church family live everyday as a prepared people.  Of course, the question may be asked, “How can I be prepared?”  (1) Believe (in Jesus Christ and what He has done for you); (2) Repent (of your sins); (3) Confess (that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God); (4) Be Baptized (having your sins washed away).  If we are a prepared people then let us do our best to help those around us make the necessary preparations.  Praise God that through His Son Jesus He has prepared a place for us!
