Classes started on Monday here in the Fellowship Hall. We had 12 ladies going through the routine led by Joanne Gray, Grace Bible Church’s own parish nurse. Joanne is an occupational nurse and holds a master degree. We are thankful for her passion for both spiritual and physical health of our senior here at church and neighborhood.
Classes are held every Monday and Thursday between 10 and 11 am.
We had so many compliments about our facility and the conducting of the service from the 200 plus people who attended Dick Grey’s. Memorial Service on Saturday night. Dick, his wife Joanne and family has been attending our services here at Grace Bible Church for the last 7 months and Joanne recently became a member. Dick passed away on July 27 after a short illness with cancer. The service was very unique because of Dick’s baseball career with the LA Dodgers in the late 50′s early 60′s. We had some of his team members attend and also the LA Dodgers team historian who gave tribute to his ball career with some interesting statistics and stories. The children and grand children all participated in the service reading scriptures and poems and memories of “Papa”. A eulogy was given by Rev. Gene Shepherd, Dick’s pastor for 14 years. After a message of hope from Pastor Phillip du Plessis the service was dismissed with the song “Take me out to the ball game”. Every body stayed for Hot-dogs, popcorn, peanuts and cracker jack which was served on the patio outside the church. It was good to see family and friends console each other with fond memories of Dick. Please continue to Pray for the Grey family as they go through the grieving process and deal with life without Papa.
