Caring For the Hurting

Church Family,

As many of you may know, earlier this week a Camden couple, daughter, and unborn child were tragically killed in an auto accident at the intersection of 127 and 725. Yesterday we received a call inquiring about the possible use of our facility for the visitation and funeral and this morning I met with the extended family of those whose lives were lost to plan the funeral.  This Saturday, September 16 we will be hosting the visitation from 10:00-2:00 and the funeral for the four at 2:30pm.

Once again God has granted this church an opportunity to care for those in our community who are hurting and grieving in the midst of loss through the use of our facility.  I think back to our study of the sermon on the mount and Jesus’ words to those gathered on the hill when he said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”  I believe, with our Lord’s help, we are to be the hands and feet of Christ to this family and help bring comfort in a very difficult time.  I’m reaching out and asking you to be a part of caring in a few tangible ways:

  • Pray for the extended family and friends of those who have died.  They are experiencing deep grief for the sudden loss of four lives.  Pray for God to bring comfort, peace, and assurance in their loss and grief.
  • Serve as a part of our Guest Ministries for a shift on Saturday to help with greeting,  directing guests, parking, providing coffee, and anything else needed for those entering our facility. This will be a full day and we will need plenty of volunteers to provide the best care.  If you are interested in serving please contact Valerie Glaze at 571-379-3828.

Thank you for loving others in the name of Christ!

Pastor Dan
