Pastor Jane Baker

It is with sadness that we report that Pastor Jane returned to be with the Lord on 26 of December. We pray for the peace of Christ to uphold her family in this time of mourning. Information about a memorial service will be provided once plans are decided on by the family. In our times of grief my we be comforted by the promises of Scripture.  “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor heights, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Roman 8:28-39
