Prayers for Verdean’s family. I worked with her at New Generation Daycare in Liberty. She was very sweet! 🙏🏼❤️

I remember first meeting your mom when she came to our house for the bus ministry. Earl and I were bus riders! Verdean was also my Missionette Leader when I got older. She was also our sons teacher at New Generation Day Care! She was a wonderful Godly woman and will be missed! Especially the smile she always had on her face. Prayers for you and your family!

Verdean was such a warm woman of wisdom. I worked with her at a daycare teaching preschool. Even on difficult days with the kids, she always had wisdom to offer me. She was one of the most thoughtful women of God that I know. Her kind thoughtfulness and winning ways Will always be a treasure in my heart!

Sis. Verdean was a wonderful example of a true Christian. She was truly concerned with what was going on in your life, and faithful to pray for your circumstances. I will miss her very much. I pray for God's comfort for Bro. Chapman.

Verdean prayed with me to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and was a true Sister in Christ. We went to church with Bro. & Sister Chapman many years and Tom served on the board and I in the financial dept. Alongside Verdean and Sister Sally Daniels. We will all truly miss her until we meet again at the gate. God grant peace and comfort to Bro. Wilbur and the entire family.

Tom, Rosalie Crocker & Family

Maxx and Barbara so sorry for your loss my sincere condolences.

Oh my, what a wonderful lady Sister Chapman was. I remember just a few weeks ago, there were about 4 of us praying together close to the alter, and we were hitting Heaven's doors with our prayer and praise. Greeting her and Brother Chapman coming in the front door of the church, and always "dress" like a lady should. I'm sending prayers for Brother Chapman and family.
