Remembering Pastor Fred; Comforting Pastor Ruth

April 13, 2019

Pastor Fred passed from this world on the morning of April 13th.

The full glory of Christ's promise is now his.

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Henceforth, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but to all who have loved his appearing."

2 Timothy 7-8

A visitation will take place at Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral home on Friday, May 3 from 6 to 8PM.  A elebration of Fred's life will take place at Bethlehem on Saturday may 4.  Visitation at Noon and the service at 1:00PM.  Bishop Craig Satterlee of the Northwest Mihigan Synod will preside.   Special music prior to the service.  A light luncheon will follow.   

The family will have a private interment in Northport at a later date.

As you have been doing, please keep Pastor Ruth and the Overdier family in your prayers.

May God bless and welcome this gentle shepherd.
