Thank you for your continued prayers for the McDaniel family during this transition time without our beloved sister Joyce. While we will miss her physical presence among us as a valued member of our assembly, we know that we will see her again when the family of God convenes in heaven. She has begun her new phase of eternal life in Jesus’ presence. For the rest of us, we await that day when the Lord either raptures us or calls us home through bodily death. Either way, as the Apostle Paul put it, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!”
 
For those of you who are local, we will be celebrating Joyce’s life on October 19 from 3-6 PM at our Grace House (4609 N 189th Ave Litchfield Park, AZ 85340 – for driving directions, click HERE). A potluck meal will be provided by our church family for all attendees. Joyce also left a special gift for anyone who can come in person.
 
Joyce loved the people of God at Crossroad and invested much of her time, talent, and treasure here. As a parting gift to her church family, the family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Crossroad Building Fund to help complete our 1st building to be used as a tool to disciple and reach our community for Jesus.
 
Please make your plans to attend this special celebration and to give as you feel led. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to this e-mail so that our church family can make appropriate seating and food arrangements. We look forward to celebrating Joyce’s life together with you.
