    Oak Missionary Baptist Church 320 Elk Street Youngstown, Ohio 44505 (330) 747-1672 Rev. Sylvia L. Jennings, Pastor Trustee Chairman Melvin Riley Asst. Deacon Chairman Maurice Feagins Condolence Dennis & Wilson Family We, the Pastor, Officers and Congregation of Oak Missionary Baptist Church offer our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences on the passing Mother Eloise Dennis. From the pain of the flesh, we must let go and humbly submit to our Creator and Sustainer who has seen fit to call Mother Eloise home. But in our spirit, we can shout Halleluiah for she has completed her assignment and is on her journey home. “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Corinthians 5:1 Be confident, knowing; to be absent from the body (is) to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8a So we look forward to that “Great Gettin Up Morning” when we shall see our beloved Mother Eloise again. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Rev. Sylvia L. Jennings DONE BY THE ORDER OF OAK MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH

    Brenda, we're sorry to hear you are mourning the loss of your mom. May you find strength from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
