Staff Member Leaves the Church and Granddaughter

 When you lose your good friend after four 1/2 years you are sad, for a lack of a better word. Johnny has been a part of Rivers of Joy Baptist Church for almost 6 years and has done a good job as for playing and singing for us each Sunday.  Johnny was a blessing to me as well as to the church family. But there are those times when you might feel the need to leave the church.  I am not sure why Johnny wanted to leave the church, but we are still friends and he and Phyllis are welcome to come back anytime they desire.
Last Sunday my granddaughter AGW (Eric and Leslie daughter)  was our guest.  She is the one in the blue.  They love to showoff.
