Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Services will be held on Thursday at Vineyard Main in Canon City at 2 p.m. The church address is 629 Harrison, Canon City, CO 81212.
Because of Joe’s passion for missions the family is asking that instead of flowers, donations be given to youth missions programs to help spread the message of Jesus to the lost. The family suggests John and Kara ministries or Vineyard Youth Missions as some of the many great places to support financially. If you would like to support one of these ministries please send a check made out to “Vineyard Christian Fellowship” to 245 South Raynolds Canon City, CO 81212 with the appropriate ministry noted in the memo field.
