So soon!  We have had another death in our church family.  Timothy A. Rainey, son of Sister Lee Rainey passed away October 26, 2016. 

Timothy was the son of Sister Lee Rainey and Elzie Rainey.  He left two brothers -- Joseph and Anthony, and one sister -- Cynthia.  Funeral was held on October 29 at Molnar Funeral Home in Southgate.  Interment at Huron Valley Cemetery.  Afterward, the church hosted a luncheon for the family and friends in the church fellowship hall.  Again, we appreciate those who prepared and served food.

(From the Obituary)

This world was not my home--I was just passing through.

My treasures are laid up--Somewhere beyond the blue.

The angels beckoned me--From heaven's open door.

And I could not stay--In this world anymore.
