The program can be cancelled anytime you wish. A dedication service took place for the beautiful upright grand piano, which has perfect pitch, that Keith and Diane Puckrin donated to the church in memory of parents Fred and Mildred Puckrin, who were active in the life of the church from 1976 onward. Keith gave a brief family history of their lives in Seagrave. Joan Lee played “Abide With Me” on the piano and Wynne and Wendy Hughes sang one verse in Welsh, in perfect harmony. Rev. Richard’s message was entitled “Allegiance to Jesus”. What does it mean? The world is in a terrible place, we are like Moses asking God ‘What do you want me to do?’ Start by getting peace within and spread the peace, making sure Jesus is present in your life. It is time for action. A meaningful “Healing Service” was held in the evening at the church with Rev. Richard and his wife Marcia, with uplifting spiritual music played by Joan Lee in a dimly lit sanctuary creating a peaceful, serene atmosphere. At the service, if you wished, you could go forward to speak privately to Rev. Richard and Marcia of your wishes and be blessed, and a cross of holy oil placed upon your forehead.
