Final Farewell

Sunday was a bittersweet day as we said goodbye to not only our Pastor and his wife as they are retiring, but also to our church. With Pastor retiring, we decided the best thing to do was dissolve the church. We had only been averaging 20-25 people (including 7 kids and teens), so there wasn't enough people to be able to go on.

Once the weather warmed up a little, there was always many box elder bugs in the entry

 The boys and Emily liked to pick them up and put them outside

Emily wasn't involved this time around, but I wanted to capture the ritual on "film"

For our final service, several families that had attended in the past came as well as friends

There were 50 people in attendance

It was also Mrs. Whittenburg's birthday, so we sang Happy Birthday to her

gifts of appreciation


  And of course the fellowship

We were thinking of you guys this past Sunday. Hope the transition goes well for all of you to new church homes. :)
