Congratulations my [BROTHER OR SISTER]!
We would like to share in the joy you must feel with your recent baptism. Your past sins have been forgiven and today is the beginning of your new Christian life.
[CHURCH NAME] is very proud of you and we pray for increased blessings in your life. May this wonderful occasion be a very special start in knowing that God’s love will live and grow in your heart. As you face challenges in your life, remember the day your sins were washed away, and seek God’s spirit that has been reborn within you.
Yours in Christ,
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Psalms 96:11 (NIV)
Human words are always inadequate in the face of unspeakable loss. There are no human words that can soothe the heart of a grieving parent. My heart goes out to you as I join you in your grief.
Job lost every one of his children. When his three friends saw him, they wept aloud, tore their robes, and covered their heads with dust. Please know that my robe is torn, my head is dusty, and I weep. Like Job’s friends, I would sit on the ground with you for seven days and seven nights if I could, without saying a word, because I know how great your suffering is.
As Christians, we know this is not our real home. Christ conquered death for all of us-we will see our loved ones again. We grieve, yet through Christ we know our grief will turn to joy. And in the midst of our grief, we can join Job in saying, “I know that my Redeemer lives.” (Job 19:25 NIV)
Please remember that you are not alone-you have a Redeemer and a family in Christ.
All of us at [CHURCH NAME] share your sorrow at the loss of your child.
May the grace of our Redeemer, and the love of the Father, and the comfort of the Holy Spirit be with you.
Yours in Christ,
The church was saddened to hear of your illness and would like to to extend a helping hand and prayers for your speedy recovery.
The Lord says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Though you are weak and feeling poorly, remember God’s promise and lean on Him during these troubled times. He will not forsake you but will lift you up and make you whole once more.
If there is anything you need or anything we can do to assist you during this difficult time, please do not hesitate to give us a call at [CHURCH NUMBER]. You are continually in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless and keep you.
Love in Christ,
3 John 1:2 (NIV)
