PASTOR PHYLLIS' PROMOTION

 

Pastor Phyllis departed this world and was ushered by the angels into the Lord's presence on March 24, 2020 at the age of 88. All who encountered Pastor were touched by the loving, nurturing way of a "Mom". Her godliness and love for the Lord, coupled with an Irish humor and fun-loving manner equipped her to bring the Lord's unconditional love and healing touch to those who were blessed to know her. She is greatly missed but has deposited much in us and left an incorruptible legacy for us. Well done, Mom!! We are blessed and forever grateful for your life.

Pastor Phyllis' passing was just as the pandemic was beginning so we were not able to have a Celebration of Life service when she departed.  We are excited to announce we will be having this time of celebration on Saturday, June 5th, 2:00 PM at the Patapsco Valley State Park - Pickall Area, Pavilion 707, 8125 Johnnycake Rd, Windsor Mill, MD 21244. There will be a reception on-site at the conclusion of the service. All are welcome, however, we request the courtesy of an RSVP by May 15 to our church email, contact@sapphirechurch.org.

Rev. Thomas C. Reinecke, Sr.

May 5, 1929 – June 5, 2019
