Good evening Church Family,
The resurrection is a central doctrine of the Christian faith and shapes Christians’ attitudes and responses to the event of death. Death brings loss, sorrow, and grief to all. In the face of death, Christians affirm with tears and joy the hope of the gospel. Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation but are sustained by the power of the Spirit and the community of faith. The church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve.
The great mystery of the incarnation is that God became human in Jesus so that all human flesh could be clothed with divine life. Our lives are fragile and destined to death. But since God, through Jesus, shared in our fragile and mortal lives, death no longer has the final word. Life has become victorious. Paul writes: “And after this perishable nature has put on imperishability and this mortal nature has put on immortality, then will the words of scripture come true: “Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54). Jesus has taken away the fatality of our existence and given our lives eternal value.
Please join friends and family in support of the lives lived and loved of Alice and Connie Aberant. There will be a service to the witness and resurrection of life followed by a time of fellowship at White Memorial Presbyterian Church, Thursday starting at 6:00 PM. Please join us in sustaining our church family and friends by the power of the Holy Spirit and our community of faith as we hold in remembrance Alice and Connie.
All are welcome.
Peace and grace,
