In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct thy paths.

Congratulations On Your Retirement
To Our Beloved Retiring Deacon
Rejoice with you on this special occasion
as you celebrate your retirement.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, fill your life
with His joy and sustain you by His grace.
For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
