Resolution in Loving Memory of Janice Marie Moyenga July 27, 2011



We the Senior Pastor, Assistant Pastor, Ministerial Staff, Deacons, and Members of the St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church of Milwaukee, Wisconsin resolve the following to the Family of Janice Marie Moyenga


There is now a hush in our hearts as we come together to pay our respects to the memory of one whose full life was ended when she was called to join that innumerable heavenly caravan.”  We salute Sister Moyenga and bid her a fond farewell.  According to His tender mercy, God, who is infinite in His wisdom, has seen fit to move from our midst our beloved sister in Christ by means of death on July 19, 2011.   


WHEREAS, Sister Moyenga was a faithful member of St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church, she was dedicated to her food ministry of serving other… she started the breakfast ministry and served breakfast every Sunday so that the children will be able to have nourishment between services and the dinner ministry every Tuesday after Bible Study so the members will stay and  fellowship with each other … she supported every ministry of the church and was always willing to do what ever was needed so that the ministry will go forth.  Janice was also the president of the Usher Board and the Sunday before passing was name St. Peter’s Women of the Year for 2011-2012.


WHEREAS, the passing of our beloved sister has left us with a broken heart, we acknowledge and accept the will of God.  We know our hearts bleed with sorrow, but are comforted by knowing God will not put more on us that we can bear.


WHEREAS, we believe the words of Jesus in John 14 that encourages us to “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many mansions:  if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”


THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that we embrace the family because all of us have a common bond that will connect us for the rest of your lives.  We can not replace Sister Janice Marie Moyenga, but will attempt to demonstrate her love for you.


Humbly submitted,

St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church
