“Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 
“Where, O death, is your victory?
    Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:54-57

Jack Lewis Swedlund
1959 - 2021

Last week, with family by his side, and faith in his heart, Jack was called home. We are thankful he is no longer suffering, but we will miss his big smile. As Jack shared with me many years ago, Jesus completely changed his life and by the power of the Holy Spirit, YOU Grace Fellowship shared God's love with him and his family. He sincerely loved his church and told everyone about his Savior. Tanya, Jack's wife wanted to thank all of you for all you have done for him and their family. This weekend, as we mourn the loss of our friend, we celebrate eternal life given freely to Jack, to us, and to all who believe in Jesus. Victory over death, won for Jack and for you in Jesus! Please continue to pray for Tanya and the entire family.

For members of Grace Fellowship, we will hold Memorial services during regular service times

Sunday, January 31st.
9:00AM and 10:30AM

This will allow all of us to celebrate Jack's life and what Christ did for him eternally. Please sign up for Sunday service as usual on the Grace Fellowship App or click below.

See ya Sunday as we celebrate Jack's life and the eternal life offered to all who believe in Jesus.

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
