In Memory of Betty and Oma – The Snow Hill Sign

Some fifteen years ago Betty did not survive a heart attack. Many gifts came in to Snow Hill in memory of Betty. We talked with her husband, Dwain, about how to use those gifts. It was decided we would purchase a new sign for Snow Hill. We donated our old sign to a small church north of Lindsay.

Almost two years ago Oma shared her 90th birthday with us and then said good-bye. Many gifts came in to Snow Hill in memory of Oma. We talked with her family about how we might use this gifts. It was decided we would spruce up our Foyer and plan to update our sign.

We explored the possibilities and the costs associated with the upgrade to the sign. During that process high winds wreaked havoc on our sign. After picking up the pieces and contacting our insurance company, we discovered we could use the insurance money and the gifts in memory of Oma to not just update but upgrade to a digital sign.

Today we received the piece we needed to make the digital message center work. We still may need a new ballast or two, but the sign is lit and the message center is working properly. Betty, and her family, and Oma, and her family, knew these two ladies loved their church. Their memories are kept alive in the sign that marks the location where we gather to declare in word and deed the goodness of God as a local church and as the place we leave from each week to bear witness in our lives to the faithfulness of God each day scattered around and beyond our community.

Jesus invites people into his life and his way. He takes what is and points to the new way of the Kingdom of God.  Come see what this journey is all about!

One way to think about the mission of Jesus - He calls into question the way things are and points to the way things may be in the Kingdom of God.
