Rev. Ernest A. Stiles, Sr. minister of Fontana Community Church for almost 24 years, died November 19, 2018 at age 97. His memorial service was Sunday, November 25 at the church.
His life verse was "To know Christ and make Him known", a summary of 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 “…Thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we ...are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.”
"Go rest high on that mountain. Your work on earth is done."
