On Sunday evening, our dear brother (member & deacon) Eivion Williams passed from this life into glory and the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. His last day was spent mostly in quiet rest with his family gathered around him. Eivion’s confidence and complete trust in a gracious, sovereign Lord was firm to the very end. Please be praying for his wife, Nan, his children Sean and Erin, his surviving siblings, and his four young grandsons.
The funeral will be at Noon on Friday, April 22, at Faith Baptist Church in Rexford (not at CPCC), with calling hours there from 10 AM to Noon.
Psalm 116:15 declares,
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
