Sunday was a hard day for our church. Our beloved Pastor Paul has been called to another ministry. He is a chaplain in the Navy Reserves and has been called to Washington DC to begin a new chaplain program for the Merchant Marines. He has been at our church for almost 8 1/2 years and has been such a blessing to us.
Paul and his wife Nancy have been good friends and I know this isn't a forever goodbye, but it is the end of their time here in our church fellowship.
This picture was taken this morning when some of the church leaders commissioned Paul and prayed for him as he begins this new calling.
