Coming Together


The church body was designed by God to accomplish several jobs.  Together, we worship the one true God, we work side by side to share the good news across the world, and we wear each others triumphs, burdens, and trials as a way of encouragement for one another.  Our church has experienced a heavy burden with the loss of Mason Cunningham.  We are experiencing this burden together with the Cunninghams.  Our hearts go out to the family as they grieve the loss of their little boy.

If you are unaware of the situation, Mason, who is about 18 months old, passed away suddenly, this week.  Mason, who was just enjoying life outside Tuesday evening, got too close to the creek behind the house. In a very short time, he fell in.  The family searched long and hard, joined by a team of professionals from the Nampa/Caldwell area.  Unfortunately, they were not able to recover Mason until the next morning.

Both Wade and Kristina are hurting greatly.  I’ve watched them parent Mason and can say with confidence, that they have done a fantastic job of being attentive to his needs.  This is one of those times, when, as a parent, you think everything is safe and somehow, in a very short time, a little one gets away.  They did everything humanly possible to retrieve Mason.

We are a church family.  We rejoice together, we cry together, and right now we are crying.

We are a church family.  We rejoice together, we cry together, and right now we are crying.  We hurt for the Cunninghams, but we will walk this road together with them.  Already, you, the church, have shown them so much love.  Keep it up!  They need us.  They need Christ.  That’s what we do, we Involve people in the life of Christ.  Together, we are the body of Christ. Together, we live for Christ.  Together, we bear each other’s burdens for the honor and glory of Jesus Christ.

There is a memorial service planned for Mason this Saturday, August 5th at 10:30 a.m.  It will be held at Meridian First Baptist Church.   428 W Pine Ave, Meridian, ID 83642
