IN APPRECIATION

 Dear Grace Family, I have been on a lengthy trip of faith

 experiencing blessing after blessing.  Jesus has kept me safely

 protected in His precious loving arms.  I have felt very supported

 and uplifted by so many of my Grace family.  Thank you, Pastor

 Rick, for all of your visits to the hospital and home.  Thank you to

 you, my spiritual family, for prayers, cards, flowers, visits, phone

 calls and food.  I have felt love beyond compare.  I’m hoping soon to

 be back in the fellowship at Grace. 

 ~With Christian Love, Karen Ver Hulst

 

 Thank you to all who remembered me in one way or another. 

 Thanks to Pastor Rick, Bill Tacoma, and Louise Grimm for their
