Funeral Home in Leesburg VA | Colonial Funeral Home of Leesburg

Carl W. Carnes, a faithful servant of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, died peacefully the morning of Tuesday, May 13, 2020. He was 87 years old. The family plans to hold a Remembrance Service at Bethel U.M. Church, 41799 Stumptown Rd, Leesburg, VA, 20176, sometime in the future after the virus bans are lifted. Please visit www.colonialfuneralhome.com, sign Carl’s guestbook and share your special memories of him. You can leave your email address for updates and future events. Photos are available for viewing there as well.

Career-wise, it would be safe to say that Carl is unique, working as an accountant at E Systems (now Raytheon) in Falls Church, Virginia, from straight-out-of-college until retirement. Carl also loves baseball, and played for the Richmond University Spiders while achieving his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting there. Carl was drafted by Uncle Sam into the U.S. Army after his first two years of college. He served his country for two years and returned to the University of Richmond after an honorable discharge to complete his degree. During this time Carl befriended the young new pastor of Bethel Church in his hometown, and suddenly discovered the pastor had a beautiful younger sister named Carol. A few dates and at least one apple pie later, Carl travelled to James Madison College on May 9th, 1958, while Carol was studying for her finals, and proposed. Carl & Carol were married August 9th, 1958. He played Men’s baseball in Loudoun County for many years, and even church softball. In addition, Carl took over tending his parents’ large garden in Stumptown, growing vegetables for family and friends. After his children left the nest, he began driving to Omaha, NE, every June to attend the NCAA College World Series (baseball) up through 2016. His four children surprised him in Omaha in 2014, for the best Father’s Day week ever. Carl devoted his life to family and friends, always kind and compassionate in caring for others.

He is survived by his loving wife, Carol, and their 4 children: Susan Dudek, Evelyn Boor, Leslie Lindsey & Wes Carnes. Carl, or “Grandaddy,” shared a special relationship with each of his 13 grandchildren: Jessica, Amanda, Amelia, Josh, Ethan, Eslynn, Eli, Corey, Brant, Abigail, Sara, Reese and Freyja. (And a few “grand dogs as well!)

No flowers please! If you would like to honor Carl’s life, the family requests that any donations be made in Carl’s name to Bethel United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 152, Lovettsville, VA, 20180. Funds will be designated to helping those in need, something Carl excelled at his entire life.

[05/18/16]   Saturday is almost here!! Don't make supper, come out and join us!!

[01/24/16]   Here is a mini sermon for those who would like to know what we were going to do on Sunday. Our scripture was Luke 4: 14-21— It is about Jesus returning to his home town and preaching in the synagogue . He reads from the passage from Isaiah and then declares that the scripture has been fulfilled in their hearing. All of Jesus’ teaching was rooted in the Holy Spirit and his whole life was a build up to his public ministry. Jesus had spent much of his time in prayer and study to be prepared for the moment God called upon him to come forth as the Lord’s Anointed. The Spirit, the “inspiration” came on him because he was ready to receive it.

We are called to do no less. We are called to be prepared, to be ready to be open to the Spirit, and the only way to do that is to take seriously where God is calling us to study scripture and to pray and to seek God’s will in the community of the faithful. It was not by accident that it was Jesus’ custom to go to synagogue. He didn’t go there because they were friendly (this bunch certainly was not) he didn’t go there because his family, his Mother and his brothers and cousins went there (though they were); Jesus went to pray, to hear God’s word read and explained, to prepare for the moment when God would call upon him to do something extraordinary, and when that moment came, he was ready. So, the first thing we see here is Jesus preparation for and dependence upon the Spirit.

The second thing we see is that Jesus was the nature of what Jesus was called to do. The things Jesus is called to say and do as the Lord’s anointed -- shout out in large letters the message: GOD CARES FOR YOU! Good News to the poor, release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, freedom for the oppressed. Love, care, act.

As the followers of Christ, we are also called to care, not just in our hearts, but also in our actions. And we are called to caring actions all the time, not just on Sundays. We are called to find ways as individuals and as a church, and a community of faith of doing those very things Jesus talks about in our gospel lesson. To do any less would be to back away from our call to take up our cross and follow.

In our Bible passage, it is clear that Jesus knows who he is and where he is going. It is an awareness that has come to him through a serious study of the scriptures, deep and impassioned prayer and a commitment to living within the community of God’s faithful people.

As we wait out this blizzard, let us take time to reflect on how we too are called to follow Jesus in this ministry— through prayer, commitment and service. What are the things we can do to show others we care?

God bless you all. We pray for everyone’s safety this weekend and hope to see you all on January 31st.

Blessings, Pastor Elfie

For those of you who may not know, Ben attended church here at Bethel, and his first missionary adventure as a teen ended up changing the course of his life. Isn't God wonderful!
