DECEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK:  The year was 1995.  It was Thanksgiving Day and our family had gathered with Marilyn’s side of the family for the usual feast at her parents’ home in Campbell Hill.  This year, however, was different than any other, for somebody very important was missing.  It was Marilyn’s dad, Henry, who had…
