This is the season that we remember God's gift to us when Christ came to redeem a very broken world. Officer Mengedoht's death reminds us why He came, to give us hope for His final redemption. No longer broken, may you be embraced in the arms of our Father or redemption. May His arms of grace enfold your family and friends. We thank you and honor you for your service.

Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen

Into thy hands, O merciful Savior, we commend the soul of thy servant now departed from the body. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech thee, a sheep of thine own fold, a lamb of thine own flock, a sinner of thine own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of thy mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace and, into the glorious company of the saints in light. 

Thank you for your service, Detective Mengedoht.

Our prayers are with your family, friends, and colleagues.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all. 2Thess3:16
