A Tribute to Viola Walker

On behalf of our church family, I extend our love, sympathy and prayer support to Marsha Kerby and her family in the homegoing of her mother, Viola Walker, who went home to be with the LORD last night at 11:20 p.m. Viola originally joined membership at Circle Drive on September 2, 1984, moving her membership from Fruit Avenue Baptist Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After returning to New Mexico to live, she came back to Colorado Springs, and again began attending Circle. It has been a joy to know Viola, and also visit her on occasion. She was always warm and gracious when I visited her. Viola faithfully attended worship services at Circle Drive. She also attended and participated in the Discerning Women's Sunday morning Bible study, led by Elaine Martz. Viola Walker's celebration of life service is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 28 at 10:30 a.m. in the worship center at Circle Drive. Continue to pray for her family during these days.more...

A Tribute to Anne Allen

On behalf of our church family, I extend our love, sympathy, and prayer support to the family of Anne Allen, who "went home to be with the LORD" last night at her home. Anne demonstrated great grace and faith in her battle with cancer. First, she was diagnosed with lymphoma, and then five years ago she was diagnosed with leukemia. Her battle is now over, and Anne won. Anne is alive, and the cancer is dead. Anne was born in the Bronx, New York on November 11, 1939. She and her husband, David, met and dated for 2+ years, and were married for 47 years. David and Anne began attending Circle Drive when they moved to Colorado Springs from Washington, D.C. in 2003. Anne came forward August 24, 2003 on profession of her faith in JESUS. She followed JESUS in believer's baptism on September 21, 2003. Anne, along with David, faithfully attended worship services at Circle. One of her favorite events of the week was the Tuesday morning adult Bible study. Be sure to pray for David and his family! A Celebration of Life service will be held in a few weeks.more...
