Many of our Liberty members lives have been touched by the Harts over the past 14 years. The Harts have helped us grow in our faith, planted seeds of hope and love in our lives, and truly made a difference. Becky’s prayers are powerful and healing. Along with John’s awesome Cardinal stories, with his incredible financial abilities, has led Liberty into a solid future where our children and grandchildren will have a place of worship. Many of you have already sent in your cards of tearful goodbyes and words of friendship and encouragement. These caring words cannot be compared to a full-blown party. They are thoughtful, meaningful, and touching—something that a room full of 200 people cannot convey.
Will there be a final farewell to the Harts on August 23rd? Of course! Time will tell whether we have a larger gathering under the pavilion or a more intimate “goodbye” at their last church service, whether it be online or in-person. We will, of course, keep you updated as to the “HOW” we are going to say farewell.
As to the “WHY” — the Harts have shared their deep compassion, dedication, friendship and faithful service with us. Your prayers, cards and emails of thanks, and well wishes to our pastors are something they will never forget. The Harts have touched our lives as much as Liberty, and its members have touched theirs.
Elder, Clerk of Session, “Farewell” committee member, and one of the lives that the Harts have deeply touched
