It is with sorrow but great Joy and Hope -- in the Promises of Jesus Christ Who stated: “I Am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in Me, though (s)he die, yet shall (s)he live" -- that we announce the death of our dearly beloved Church Secretary, Sharon Annette Wilson. She had faithfully served our church since late 2014 after many years in the 'corporate' world. She had also worked and lived in the Little Rock, AR, Memphis, TN and Dallas areas.
