Dear First Free Family,

We are beyond thankful for our church family and all the love each of you have shown us after the car accident. We appreciate the cards, prayers, calls/texts checking in, visits and meals more than we can express. It is such a gift to have a church family that so clearly shows God's love to us.

We love you all!
Emily & Justin Syrios

Dear First Evangelical Free Church Family,

Thank you so very much for the thoughtfulness of the beautiful peace lily in remembrance of two Godly Giants in my life. Eddie Libby, my brother from Whitewater, KS and Rev. Wally Higgins, my brother-in-law from Salt Lake City, UT died three days apart.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the beautiful Peace Lily plan I received in my mother's death. She had deep faith. Thanks for the phone calls and cards. My mother, Evangeline R. Carlson, loved the Lord and was an active member of her church until she got sick. She had a strong love for her church.

With much appreciation,
Renae McCrory

Dear First Free,

God has special ways of brightening our days, and you certainly added a measure of brightness to our day; with the best wishes and the beautiful bouquet of roses for our 60th anniversary. It was quite a surprise. Thanks.

WIth the love of Christ,
Jim and Elise Gates

Dear First Free Family,

On behalf of my family, I want to thank you so much for the prayers, kind words and lovely plant that you have gifted to us. Thank you to Pastor High, Sherri and Judy for attending the service - that meant so much. What a gift mom was to all of us and what a gift to know she is with the Lord she loves. We miss her.

Sending our love and gratitude,
Mike, Michelle and Allison Sutherland
