It is with deep sadness and great sorrow that we, your Visionary Board of Elders inform you of the passing of our Interim Pastor, Curtis Keith, yesterday, February 1, 2021 at his home.


Curtis tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday after coming down with Covid symptoms earlier in the week.  His passing on Monday occurred before Barbara could finish retrieving his new prescriptions in Fredericksburg.


Curtis’ heart, bigger than all outdoors, was for lost souls and he will be long remembered for his meaningful messages and willingness to serve.  He truly gave the last, full measure in his service to God and to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  His passing leaves a hole in our church family that can never be completely filled.


The Visionary Board of Elders met on Monday afternoon, before hearing the news of Curtis’ passing, to make decisions based on what we knew at the time about Covid-19 affecting not only Curtis but others in our Church family.  However, those plans have now changed as we move not only into a time of loss and grieving but also a time of restructuring while celebrating the life of our Pastor & Friend who gave his all for God and God’s people at First Christian Church and beyond.  At this time, the Church will be closed for worship until further notice as we move through the grieving process as well as make decisions for our future week by week.  We seek your prayers for Barbara and family as well as the Church and its leadership.  Barbara’s address for sympathy cards is 707 Grape Creek Road, Fredericksburg, TX 78624.  We ARE the Church and God WILL see us through.  Thank you for your understanding and prayers.


Your Visionary Board of Elders,

Bruce Barton, Wiley Rains, Chris Lubitz, Carolyn Bartusek, Dick Rector, TJ Yancey


Romans 14:8

 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
