Precious in the Sight of the Lord

“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:15
 
Faithful is the one word that quickly comes to mind when thinking of Bro. Curtis Miller. He was a man who walked with the Lord, and that was evident to all who knew him. His fidelity to Christ was seen in his care for his wife and family, the manner in which he daily lived, and his commitment to serve Christ through the Bible Baptist Church. Bro. Curtis’ was a long life well-lived for the glory of God. He will be sorely missed, but we rejoice that he is now in the presence of the Lord and Savior he faithfully served, and reunited with his sweet wife Darla, who he dearly loved.
   
Funeral services for Bro. Curtis Miller will be Monday, January 18 at 2:00 PM, here in the sanctuary of the Bible Baptist Church. Burial will follow in Cresthaven Memorial Cemetery. Friends may call at the church after 12:30 PM Monday. We respectfully ask that you please honor social distancing and wear a facial covering while visiting the church.

Gathered Unto His People

Bro. Don Stayton was called home to glory late Sunday night, December 20. For him, faith has become sight. For us, we grieve, but not like those who have no hope. Like Bro. Don, our hope is in the Lord who is only good, always wise, and completely sovereign. “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39.
 
Please keep Ms. Donna and all the family in your prayers. The funeral arrangements are as follows:
  • Visitation on Saturday, December 26 from 5-8pm.
  • Funeral service on Sunday, December 27 at 11am.
  • Internment at Cresthaven Cemetery 
All the above will be held in the Bible Baptist Church sanctuary. All who attend are asked to wear a mask, unless they have an actual medical exemption. Following the internment there will be a meal in the Family Life Center for the family only, and will be served by the family.
 
We want to magnify the Lord that Bro. Don faithfully served, while honoring his life and comforting his family. We also want to safeguard the family, out of town guests, and our own community from any increased exposure to COVID-19. That is why we ask for the masks to be worn, and why the meal is restricted to the family, served by the family. Your understanding is appreciated, especially by the Stayton family.
