Good Morning everyone,

Wanted to thank you once again for the donations for the Justa Center. They picked everything up last week and were so grateful to receive them. Here are couple of pictures for you.

Just remember Any donation, no matter how big or small shows a willingness to help organizations to help those in need. Says a lot about Spirit of Hope.
So from the bottom of my heart I appreciate it.

God Bless

Hi Pastor Tony,

This is Irene Jeter, I wanted to inform you that my sister Peggy Thorne has passed away. I had surgery and I am sorry I'm just getting this to you.
I would like to put something in the bulletin for a while. Peggy and Carl knew a lot of people at Spirit of Hope and they were there from the beginning of the church and I wanted the people to know. I also wanted to Thank you for putting her on the prayer list earlier.  
Our Dearest sister, aunt and wife Peggy Thorne left us to be an Angel in Heaven with God on December 27, 2021. 
  "There must be borrowed Angels here in this life. They come along, into this world and make this world bright / but they can't stay forever / cause they're heaven sent / and sometimes, heaven needs them back again. "Kristen Chenoweth" 

She lost her battle to an autoimmune disease called Systemic Scleroderma. Donations can be made in Peggy's memory to the Bob Saget Foundation for Scleroderma. 
The family of Peggy would like to Thank you all for your prayers, we are sure she felt every one of them.  

 Thank you so very much,
Irene Jeter, Ed, Rebecca, Mary, Holly and Carl Thorne.
