10th Anniversary

posted Oct 11, 2013, 2:29 PM by James Christensen
On Sunday, October 6 we celebrated our tenth anniversary with Pastor Gene McAfee with a special worship service and potluck lunch. Our special guest speaker was Margaret Mills, Minister of Stewardship, Education and Youth at Eastern Ohio and Western Reserve Associations, United Church of Christ, who preached the sermon at Gene's installation in 2003. Margaret is pictured at left with Gene, who is wearing his new preaching gown, a gift from the Congregation. Gene says:
"I would like to express my deep appreciation to everyone at Faith not only for last Sunday's wonderful anniversary celebration, but also for ten great years of ministry together. Your support, companionship, and care of your pastor have meant a great deal to me, and I hope you share my sense that God has yet more work for us to do together. Special thanks to the members of the Anniversary Committee and the many helpers who worked hard literally for months to mark this occasion. I am deeply grateful to you all. God bless each and every one of you. – Gene"
