For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace — Ephesians 2:8-15

Cemetery Committee

The Friends of Maple Grove Cemetery will be available this Saturday and Aug. 15th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Cemetery for you to make a donation of $10 and obtain and have installed a PVC VASE for your loved one's headstone.

Please know where your family's final resting place is located so the installer can assist you.

Please identify in a note how many vases and where to place them. Mail to 348 Highland Lakes Drive Richmond, KY. 40475
