Romans 8:35-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecutions, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day lon; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor heights nor depth, nor any other created things, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 11AM to 1PM at Spiritual Vision Church of God, 871 Carberry Rd., Niles, MI 49120, with Pastor Thompson officiating.
