In the past few weeks, we have learned of the recent passing of three of the former pastors of our church:

  • Rev. Helen Bailey, co-pastor 1989-90.
  • Rev. Dick Hettish, pastor 1990-1996.
  • Dr. Rev. Jerry Hurst, pastor 2009-2011 (following our 2008 schism).

We praise the Lord for the past leadership of these three pastors, and we lift up their families in prayer for their loss.
