St. John's Memorial Service for Elaine DeSouza | 2 pm, Sunday, December 9

Dear church family and friends of St. John's,

You are invited to a memorial service for Elaine DeSouza in the sanctuary of St. John's Presbyterian Church at 2 pm tomorrow, Sunday, December 9, with a reception to follow in Fellowship Hall. Elaine passed away early this morning after a long struggle with cancer. She was an inspiration to her family and our church family and will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She served Christ's church in so many ways and touched our lives through her teaching, prayer, and faith filled life. Here are a few scriptures Elaine chose for her memorial service. May they be a source of comfort to us all as we celebrate her resurrection to eternal life during her memorial service tomorrow at 2 pm.

The Lord is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27)

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8)

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)
