Ministry snapshots - Bibles for graduates - Colbert UMC
Each graduating senior received a Bible when Colbert UMC hosted the baccalaureate service May 12 for the Colbert High School Class of 2014. Pastor Paula Tucker said the program’s leadership was ecumenical.
"Our church was packed that night with lots of parents who never attend church," she wrote to Diana Northcutt, Conference youth coordinator and director of Discipleship for Small Membership Churches.
During the service, one 18-year-old senior gave his testimony. Sadly, he died June 8 after battling cancer for two years. The Bible he had received from the church was included in the funeral.
"I reminded my congregation that we never know when we touch the lives of someone," wrote Rev. Tucker.
