Passing of Johnny Farese

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As many of you already know our dear brother Johnny Farese went to be with the Lord yesterday afternoon. He passed very peacefully with friends and family near and is now in the presence of our blessed Lord. We are saddened but at the same time rejoicing that our brother is now free from suffering and seeing Jesus face to face. He was ready to go! Johnny was a gift from God to us all.   Johnny’s passing was on March 9, exactly 28 years to the day when Emmanuel Baptist Church was first constituted with Johnny as one of the original members.

Please remember his family and our church family in your prayers these days as we remember our brother and all he has meant to us.
The memorial service for Johnny Farese has been scheduled for Friday, March 28th at 7pm at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Coconut Creek Fl. This is open to the general public.  A private graveside service will be held for the immediate family this Friday.

The servers by which we send out news to the church and larger public are both down at this time. Therefore, we have been seeking to get the word out through social media, phone calls and other means.

Your Servant for Christ,

Jeff Smith
