Preacher Brad's

Farewell Luncheon

Sunday July 23rd will end an era at WFBC as this will be Brad’s last Sunday with us.  Our hearts are hurting, but at the same time, we are very excited for Brad and Eunice and can’t wait to see how God will use this great man in this next stage of his life and ministry. 

There will be a luncheon following the service on Sunday morning (July 23rd) to honor Brad and Eunice and the many years that we have had the privilege of calling him Pastor.  The church will be providing ham and fried chicken.  We ask that the congregation please bring your favorite covered dish and/or a dessert to add to the meal.  Please drop these off in the kitchen that Sunday morning.

In addition to our meal, we would like to have some folks share fond and humorous memories of Brad’s time with us.  Also, if you have pictures you’d like to share, get those to one of the Fellowship Committee members.

                                                                                                                                 Thank you,

                                                                                                                 Your Fellowship Committee

                                                             Lisa Porter, Barbara Solesbee, Pat Dean, Susan McAbee, Phillip Pack, Gail Strickland

Thank You

To our Church Family,

Thanks for all that you did for me and my family when I had hip surgery and during the recovery.  All the prayers, cards, visits and food were appreciated. Thanks to Pastor Brad for being there for us.  Everything that you did helped me to get better.

                                                                                                                   Love, Barbara & Terry Solesbee and family
