As John and I come closer to retirement, we have been reviewing cherished moments in our fourteen years here at Liberty. Here are a few of mine:
Having the great privilege of preaching to you all
Digging deep in God’s word to prepare to preach to you all!
Steve and David on the pianos, creating uplifting music, and our talented band and singers
Children’s Moments with kids racing to the steps and shouting out their answers!
Serving at His Place and Street Church – holding hands and praying with folks who are very different than our Sunday a.m. crowd
Serving with the Deacons and Stephen Ministry, with so many desiring to care for others
Visiting folks one-on-one, from hospitals to homes
Starting up Be the Church with Penny Hampshire – and 200 folks coming out, eager to join in this outreach
The joy of baptisms and privilege of standing graveside with you
And of course, singing Silent Night on Christmas Eve, candles aloft, shining with the light of Christ
I asked John for highlights, and his include: Preaching & teaching, serving alongside our outstanding Church staff and officers, Liberty’s oh-so faithful volunteers, completing all of the renovations on our campus (from the Barn to Fearing Hall), the joyous sounds of 300 children at Vacation Bible School, and any opportunity to weave the St. Louis Cardinals into a message. I echo (almost!) all of these!
What a privilege to serve this great church family.
With all Blessings,
