Temporary Farewell to Bob LeVeck

Posted on September 02, 2020 for Maple Grove by Maple Grove Servant Body in Fellowship News, Meeting News, All Congregations


Family and friends,

Our hearts are heavy as we ponder the passing of one of ours, but rejoicing that Bob is one of His!  It is our desire to inform our church family at Maple Grove, and also our extended church family and friends, of the plans regarding Bob’s funeral and memorial service.

There will be a private funeral and burial starting at 10 o’clock on Friday the 4th with the family and a few friends attending.  At this point we intend to use the normal Maple Grove call-in number (712) 432-3990 ID:45315# if possible, for those interested in listening in.  There will also be a livestream feed, details to follow on how to access that.

We also intend to hold a memorial service as our regularly scheduled service this Sunday (Sep. 6th) at 10 o’clock.  We are looking forward to worship together and want to encourage those who were close to Bob to attend if they feel to.  We also want to bear in mind the current situation and governmental recommendations regarding large crowd size and distancing, and would ask that we sit as families if possible and maintain distance with our seating.  This service will be held on the east side of the church house and will also be broadcast using the above call-in number.  Please bring lawn chairs and umbrellas for sun/rain.  

While Mary appreciates your support and love we ask that you refrain from hugging her at this time for the sake and safety of her children and grandchildren.  She will appreciate your hugs, support, and love in the days ahead.

With love,

Maple Grove Servant Body
