Dear FBCR Family,
Beloved, our Holy Week is now punctuated with sad news. After several weeks of frustrating debilitation, our dear Jack Auer has died. Jack has been an integral and greatly loved part of FBCR for many years. Scarcely any facet of church life will be untouched by his loss – especially our music program – and he will be dearly missed by all.
Your prayers for Jack’s adult children, David and Carol, and for all who were closest to him are much appreciated. This time of year we are already so well acquainted with the sting of death, but we give thanks for Jack and for the faith he held, which reminds us that it may be Holy Week, but Easter is coming. Thanks be to God.
Jack’s service will be held at the First Baptist Church of Rochester (or on zoom here) at 11:00 AM on Saturday, April 23, 2022. *An Update* The visitation for Jack will be held at Keenan Funeral Home, 7501 Pittsford Palmyra Rd, Fairport, NY 14450, on Friday, April 22, 2022 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
Brent Bowden, Pastor
