This page is dedicated to the F2W-ians that have gone home to be with Jesus! Below, you have an opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings, memories and love of those gone on. Remember: John 14:1-3 says, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” – To be absent from this body is to be present with God. We will see those we love again!!
Rita Frost – (August 29, 1951 – June 4, 2010) Rita was an amazing woman. She loved life, loved her family and loved F2W. She had a sense of humor that surpassed most comedians. She was a great woman with a huge heart and a loving smile.
Kathrine M. Roach (July 31, 1961 – December 15, 2011) Kathy was a mighty woman of God – with high morals and character. She had a love for God and a relationship with Him that was “face to face”. Her love for her family, her friends, and her Church (F2W) was beyond words.
Lisa M. Brewer (July 17, 1961 – June 24, 2014) If you look up Warrior in the dictionary, you would see this beautiful face. No matter what she was facing, Lisa had a smile that would light up a room. She knew the love of Jesus and took God’s Word to heart when He said to go into all the world and share the Good News. From the moment she got her diagnosis of cancer, it became her mission to, every day, tell someone about Jesus. Cancer didn’t win, LOVE did! <><
William “Bill” Champagne (December 29, 1942 – October 23, 2014) Servant. Minister. Poppa. Daddy. Friend. Mentor. Man of God. Santa. Husband. Grandfather. Bill wore all these hats and more. Even in his final hours he was ministering and praying for even the nurses and chaplains at the hospital. One of his last requests was for Pastor Lisa to make sure the “babies” were taken care of. Every year Bill’s ministry, The Cross Ministries, and F2W sponsored and made Christmas happen for hundreds of children who may not have had any gifts otherwise. He found such joy in the smiles of all of those children and as Santa, he got to visit with each one. We know that Bill is sharing his 1st Christmas with the One that the season is all about. Bill, we love you and we miss you so much. Until we see you again!
Makenzie Kaitlin Marie Biddwell (March 23, 2004 – June 9, 2015) If you were to look up “spunky” in the dictionary you’d find Kenzi’s picture there. She was all girl and lit up a room with her smile. She loved to be part of Youth Xplosion every year and was faithful in attending. She may be gone from this world but she left behind a legacy of hundreds of people, some that never knew Makenzie, crying out to God for salvation and them placing their trust in Kenzi’s Creator. She touched so many lives and will continue to every year, on the first night of Youth Xplosion as we do it in memory of her. Kenzi, we know you are flying with angels baby girl and you are shining that brilliant smile everywhere you go. We’ll see you again soon!
Deborah Lynn Eldridge (August 8, 1982 – March 26, 2016) Deborah was very quiet and shy but was quick to be an encouragement to everyone she met. Her famous saying was “Hey you dropped something…” and when you’d ask what and start to look for the thing you dropped she always smiled and said, “your smile”. Deborah supported every ministry she could at F2W and was a big help to Precious Jewels, Angel Ministry, and was even on Anointed Hands at one time. Her presence is missed but we know that she is cheering us on as she walks golden streets in Heaven.
Donnie Barbee (November 30, 1954 – August 30, 2016) Donnie was a big part of the foundation at F2W. He was a constant, faithful supporter of Pastor Lisa and this ministry. He began a longtime ministry called Raise Your Praise, a weekly gospel singing that took place every Friday night at F2W. He loved his family, his ministry, and F2W. He was a car guy who loved Chevys with a passion. He was always quick to lend a helping hand and anyone who knew him knew he was someone dependable. He was enthusiastic about his faith and wanted everyone he came in contact with to know about His Jesus. While we miss him terribly, we know that he is finally walking on water with the Savior.
