Death Notice - Claude McMahan

I am saddened to report that one of our dear saints in Tennessee has passed away, but I am overjoyed to know that his entry to heaven was no doubt a grand event. Please join me in prayer for this family and local church. The email from Pastor Terry Barnwell states it so well...

Dear Arrowhead Church Family;

Bro. Claude McMahan went home to be with The Lord this evening around 6pm. Another hero of the faith has gone home! Bro. Claude served his family as a godly example and he did it well! He also served our church for over 50 years as a deacon, charter member, and faithful servant.
