In loving Memory of Crystal Richards
It pleased our Lord to Call Crystal home this past weekend. Crystal passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.  Crystal has been one of our dedicated secretaries for the last year- Joining us in July of 2018. Crystal served and was a true blessing to our congregation and anyone she came in contact with; she was one of the voices behind the phone and a friendly face to greet you when one stopped into the office during the week.  We thank God for Crystal’s life, her ministry, her faithfulness, her dedication, her love and and her legacy. Above all, we thank God for her new life in his presence face to face in the mansion prepared just for her! We will certainly miss her dearly, but know we will meet again. Please keep Crystal’s family in your prayers during this difficult time.
