“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And
be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
On Saturday, June 20, 2020 one of our most faithful and beloved church members Joe Hampton went scuba diving off the coast of Pensacola, FL and died suffering an unknown medical event. His brave dive buddy did everything he could to save him valiantly performing CPR until relieved by military guys from another boat who came to help and then the Coast Guard took over once on the scene. A Coast Guard investigation is ongoing and the autopsy will be performed on Monday.
Joe lived his whole life in Oklahoma. He attended GUTS church and worked at the Tulsa USPS Plant for almost 30 years. He was also a US Special Forces veteran. He and Donna moved to Pensacola 3 years ago. Joe was an incredible husband, who loved talking about Jesus and was preparing to go to India this fall with Pastor Gary for a mission trip to visit a church and ministry we have been supporting. Joe was a faithful dedicated member and servant to Christ, his lovely wife (Donna), family and friends. He will be greatly missed. Please pray for peace and comfort for his family, our church and friends.
Attached is an underwater photo from when he was younger. He & Donna loved taking the Spyder and trailer to the beach, and took this photo last Saturday. The closeup photo was Christmas 2016.
Date for a Memorial Service will be announced as soon as details are completed.
We invite everyone in the community to our church services on Sunday (9:00 am and 6:00 pm) & Wednesday (7:00 pm) located at7004 Pine Forest Road.
