CORRECTION – WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE WRONG INFORMATION THAT WAS POSTED EARLIER TONIGHT. BELOW IS THE ACCURATE INFORMATION:
PORTLAND, OREGON – The Reverend Robert N. Probasco, Sr., pastor of the First African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Portland, Oregon has gone home to be with the Lord.
His homegoing services will be held at the New Song Community Church on Saturday, March 22, 2014 beginning at 11:00 a.m.
Please keep the family and church family and the connectional church in your prayers.
This is from the Church’s website, written by Pastor Probasco in 2012:
Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it…If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tired and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.
I wish all who have arrived at this day the best. Perhaps we all from time to time need to be encouraged. In every position in life we are learning. If you have failed and you feel you gave your best don’t stop trying. We have a God who has promised never to leave us even in our down moments of failure. Today I remind you and myself, get up thank God for the chance to begin anew.
