Dear friends,

I am writing with the sad news that Bessie Holland’s son, Alfonso Valle, died unexpectedly on Saturday. Those of you who are regulars at the 8:30 service may remember Alfonso, who often came to church with Bessie and Hollis. There will be a service for him at St. Dunstan’s at 1 p.m. Friday. Please keep Bessie, Hollis, and all of Alfonso’s family in your prayers.

I am also attaching the SignUp link for this Sunday’s service. Claiborne Jones will once again by the guest preacher and celebrant.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of your servant Alfonso, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding; Deal graciously with Bessie and all of Alfonso’s family in their grief. Surround them with your love, that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
