Fathers in Our Lives
By Rev. Chuck Currie

 

We give our thanks, Creator God, for the fathers in our lives.

Fatherhood does not come with a manual, and reality teaches us that some fathers excel while others fail.

We ask for Your blessings for them all and forgiveness where it is needed.

This Father's Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families, and the way - both big and small - they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach.

So too, we remember all those who have helped fill the void when fathers pass early or are absent; grandfathers and uncles, brothers and cousins, teachers, pastors and coaches and the women of our families.

For those who are fathers, we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting. Give them the strength to do well by their children and by You.

In Your Holy name, O God, we pray. 

Amen.

IN HONOR OF

SCOTT RANDOLPH

 
Anyone who has spent any time at the church has seen him, working to keep things running smoothly.   He fixes things, he makes things, he started and maintains the Shop and Share, he goes on mission trips, programs the carillons and any other thing that needs to be done.  He has served on every church committee except Staff-Parish. Most of all, he loves and he gives. 

Happy Father's Day, SCOTT RANDOLPH! 

From Mason, Miller, Jon, Ashley, Becca and Patty

Happy Father's Day, Grandpa!  Thank you for being a fun and loving Grandpa over all of these years!  Some of my favorite memories include our musical parade up and down the driveway, listening to you play your violin, watching you take your nap on the floor each day, and spending the night with you and Grandma!  We love you so much!  

Love, Chris, Becky, Jake, and Connor McClamrock
Grandpa, we love you!

BRUCE WALL

 
Happy Father's Day, Dad!  I am so grateful for you always being there for me.  Even though I didn't love it then, I am now so thankful that you were a chaperone for the youth group, a volunteer and bus driver for band, and involved in everything we did.  We love you so much and thank you for all of you do for our family!  

Love -
Chris, Becky, Jake, Connor, and Luke
Dad,

Thank you for all the great advice over the years. We’re so lucky to have you! 

Love,
Maggie and Drew

 
IN HONOR OF

CHRIS McCLAMROCK
Happy Father's Day, Chris!  Jake and Connor are so lucky to have you for their dad!  You share with them the importance of hard work, show them how to fix things, encourage their independence, love them fiercely, and tell them tons of dad jokes on a daily basis.  We love you so much and appreciate how hard you work for our family!  

Luke wants to tell you thank you for feeding him, snuggling with him, walking him, playing hide and seek with him, and making sure he has good manners.  

Love,
Becky, Jake, Connor, and Luke

IN HONOR OF

TOM HEDRICK
Thank you for patiently wading through the daily chaos, random socks on the floor and dogs on the couch at our house. We appreciate all you do for our family and for all the ways you've stepped up to mentor on worksites, summer camps, youth retreats and also that time those  stole your Diet Cokes at Backyard. 

Happy Father's Day -

Jen, Max, Joe, Roxy, Toby & Frankie
