The Passing of Jackie Geoffrion (with Service Information)

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” (Psalm 116:15).

Jackie Geoffrion passed away this morning (July 4, 2013) at Carriage Hill Nursing Home in Fredericksburg.  Please pray for  Mary Jane in the loss of her mother, and pray for Pastor Doug and the entire Kittredge family as they gather to remember and celebrate her life.

 We all praise God for his work in the life of Jackie.  Jackie served and worked at New Life in Christ Church for decades in many spectacular ways.  Her fingerprints are all over the life of the church and we wouldn’t be what we are without her incredible influence.  She will always be remembered for the hospitality, joy, and vibrancy that she brought to the entire church.

God has freed this wonderful spirit from the limits of her body and brought her to himself where, in the full enjoyment of God, she awaits another perfect body- a body unaffected by the decay of this world.  We have much to give thanks for in the life of Jackie, for her hope and faith, and for the Savior who rescued her.

The family will be receiving visitors at Covenant Funeral Home Sunday night at 6 PM.  The memorial service will be Monday at 1 PM at New Life in Christ Church with an internment immediately following the service.

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”” (John 11:25-26).

“Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-57).

Faithfully Yours

Pastor Sean
