Celebrating the Life of Amanda Ferguson
Please join us in our sanctuary on Saturday, June 30th at 11am as we celebrate the incredible life of Amanda Ferguson. For those of you unable to attend the service please know that we will live stream the service on our website. Many have asked what you can do to help the family at this time. In lieu of flowers there are three different ways to give:
- Amanda Ferguson Memorial Fund: This fund has been set up through Frost bank to support Brody and Brandon's future and to help with college expenses. Please make checks payable to the fund and return to the church office or directly to Frost. All checks received by the church will be given to Frost for deposit.
- Special Needs Ministry at the church. Make checks to FMCM with Special Needs in the note.
- MD Anderson Research at gifts.mdanderson.org in memory of Amanda Ferguson
