CALLED HOME:  It has pleased Almighty God to call home the soul of one of our dear members, Mrs. Erika Collins, on Monday, July 10th at the blessed age of 82 years.  A graveside service was held this past Friday.  We pray for her family, and all of her loved ones, that God will grant them comfort and peace knowing we will one day be reunited with all believers in the blessed eternity.
