John Monday Update
As many of you are already aware, our friend and elder, John Monday passed away due to complications from pneumonia on Thursday afternoon.
On Monday, January 27, we will celebrate his life and legacy with a celebration service. Receiving of friends will take place from 5pm to 8pm with the service following at 8pm. All services will take place at Calvary Baptist Church in Oak Ridge (click for directions).
Tuesday at 2pm will be the graveside service at Oak Ridge Memorial Gardens (Solway).
In the coming days and weeks, we will post more on the blog about the life and legacy of our friend, husband, father, brother, son, and pastor, John Monday.
You can still help in two ways: 1) You can pray. Let’s pray this together for the Monday family. 2) Family friends have set up a fund to help offset the costs of while John was in the hospital.
