Pastor Dennis Costella At Home With the Lord

We wish to let our faithful friends and supporters know of the home going of Pastor Dennis W. Costella. The Lord promoted His servant to glory the evening of October 24, 2011. Pastor Dennis was walking his dog through a crosswalk when he was struck by a truck. The FEA, Grace Bible Church of Fresno, and the entire Costella family sincerely appreciate the condolences expressed and prayers offered for abiding strength and comfort during this time. We are convinced of the wisdom and goodness of our God as well as the exceeding and precious promises He has given in His Word. While we grieve here, it is but for a moment. We know our dear brother is rejoicing in the presence of the Savior he deeply loved and sacrificially knew and served.

At this time, please be in special prayer for the family as well as for the entire FEA staff as we fill some rather large shoes. As the work of the Lord presses forward, we ask God for the strength only He can provide. May the Lord continue to be magnified and glorified "whether it be by life, or by death" (Phil. 1:20).
