Funeral for Linda Jones

This coming Saturday, we'll have memorial service for Linda Jones at Guardian Angel at 11am. Linda was a longtime member as well as being a wonderful next-door neighbor to the congregation. She was an active and friendly member of the community who always had a warm smile for her neighbors. Linda passed away Wednesday night after a brief illness.
Linda is survived by her sister, Anne Jones, and was predeceased by her husband, Bob Trimble. Please join us to honor and remember Linda.

they find rest as they lie in death."--Isaiah 57:2

Sad News about Pastor Alice

As you may have heard, Pastor Alice has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.  She had surgery and is doing well.  Currently she is receiving treatment and is not carrying out any pastoral duties at all.  You may see her around the neighborhood or at church on Sunday!  But please do not call or text her, or knock on the vicarage door.  Your prayers for Pastor Alice and her wife Chris and their family are very appreciated.  The Church continues in its weekly schedule and is welcoming volunteers during this difficult time - please email us at
