In Memoriam

11 December 2019

Dear Church Family,

On Tuesday morning, Bruce Mika, a long-time member of our church, went home to be with the Lord.  He was surrounded by his wife Marlene, and his children, Liana, Sam, and Karissa who sang him into glory at his last breath with the song “Rejoice in the Lord Always, Again I Say Rejoice.”

The Mika family would like to invite all who wish to attend to a Celebration of Life in loving memory of Bruce. The service will be held at Redeeming Grace Church on Saturday, December 14th, at 3:00 p.m. followed by a reception in the Lower Level Auditorium at 4:00 p.m.

Thank you to all who have walked hand in hand with the Mika family on this journey so lovingly and faithfully. Bruce and Marlene have been so grateful for all the love and care that their family has received. Though we are grieving Bruce’s loss, he is with his Savior and Lord.

“…in your presence there is fullness of joy…” Psalm 16:11

“As for me, I shall behold your face…” Psalm 17:15

If you have pictures or stories you would like to share at the service, please send them to by Friday noon, if possible, for a memory book to be made for his family.

If you would like to help with the reception after the service, please contact the church office (703-691-0600) or Rachel Ball at .

Grace to you,


P.S. For those that would like to join the family, the interment will be at Fairfax Memorial at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 14.
