Besides the congregation, the wider Alpena community was also invited to the Open House. We had a wonderful turnout for this event, and we were humbled and honored by all those who came and wished us well and showered us with love. We are extremely grateful to the gracious folks at St. Paul who pulled this event together.
Shirley preached her last sermons at St. Paul on August 11 and 12. Sometime in mid-Sept, Shirley and I will be moving to Colorado to start our next great adventure. We look forward to what God will be calling us to do next.
Enjoy the pictures! My thanks to Nancy Smith, a member of St. Paul, for taking some of these pictures. Peace, Vernon T.
