celebration of a ministry

We were blessed to have the Rev. Jack Shriver lead us the past two years.  He delivered his last sermon for us on July 26, 2015.  The quilters surprised him with a quilt towards the end of the service.  The choir, which normally does not sing during summer, surprised him with a special song.  We then sent him off on his journey in our traditional way of a potluck lunch. Everyone enjoyed fellowship and good food while biding Jack a fond adieu.
The day began with worship service
Quilters made a Communion Quilt for Jack
The choir sang "Celebration".
