Our hearts and prayers are with you, Stewart, Jennifer, Renee and family.
We have such wonderful memories of you all in our years at Resurrection! We know for certain of Christel’s strong faith in Jesus. She has received the goal of that faith - eternal life through our Savior. How often we talked about these things and shared the Gospel with others! We pray for comfort and strength for you in the upcoming days! With our love!

Stewart and girls, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We attended services online and remember Christel just as pastor recalled. The time we shared at Resurrection as part of a larger family will always be with us. Be assured we will all be together one day. May God bless.
