Deacon Sandra Holmes was a wonderful Godly woman. She was a wonderful example of what a woman should be and how she should behave. She will be sorely missed.

Dea Sandra, as she was affectionately called, was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was a giant in the Faith. a demonstrator model, a spiritual mentor and friend. She loved The LORD and lived it. She was constantly in her WORD and was a repository of scriptures frequently quoting them to encourage and even to challenge us in our spiritual walk. She was disciplined and a tireless worker in ministry. We feel privileged to have known her. She was an inspiration to us and much loved!

This hit pretty hard Deacon Sandra was one of the realist loving tell it like it is Leaders in the ministry. I can’t imagine coming to church not able to see her walk the front row praising God and shouting on the word. Deacon Holmes, Terrance and the entire family I’m so sorry for your loss truly God picked a Gem when he called Deacon Sandra home. My prayers are with you’ll during this time.
