December 8, 2019 – cancelled due to snow.

FROM PASTOR JAMES     It is with a sad and broken heart that I share with you this news.  Our good friend and Sister in Christ, Gisela Steiner, passed into her eternal rest yesterday, December 8th, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Reno.  By God’s grace, Marilyn, Bill, my wife Mary, Gisela’s step-daughter, Ruth, and I were all at her bedside for her last hours and she seemed to know it and take comfort in it, although she was unable to speak.  Ruth and I are in conversation to plan a memorial service and we’ll be sure to let you all know when this will be.  Please keep Gisela’s friends and family in your prayers and be sure to use all your creativity and generosity in keeping Gisela’s memory alive.

We are also hoping you will share any photographs you have of Gisela with us as we plan to compose a visual memorial for her; anything and everything about her love for singing, for skiing, and the outdoors.  All will be welcomed and can be sent to me at revjames121@gmail.com

With many thanks and blessings, Pastor James
