in remembrance

"There's only one requirement for entrance into [heaven]. It's not a matter of trying to be good or even going to church. The only requirement is that we personally believe that Jesus exchanged His life for ours by absorbing our sins on a cross and that He rose again so that at the moment of our death we will rise too." - Pastor Brian Bill, Pontiac Bible Church, Pontiac IL 


Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. -- Psalm 23:4


We celebrate the life God gave these deceased former members of East Main Presbyterian Church since 2015.
