I lift up my eyes to the hills.
    From where does my help come?
 My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.  
Psalm 121:1-2

New Springs Staff and Friends,

     Thank you so much for all you did to make Matt's Memorial Service so special and  
meaningful. It was a wonderful tribute to his life. Your countless prayers, generosity,
kindness, love and support helped us through this difficult journey. We are so humbled by
​the outpouring of our church family! Thank you for blessing us all so deeply!
