You are invited! Pastor's anniversary celebration September 16

On Sunday, September 16, our church has the unique privilege of celebrating a 25-year relationship between a Pastor’s family and the church family. On that day, we will recognize Gary and Vickie Furr and their family on the occasion of their 25th Anniversary of shepherding our church.

We want all of our church members, former members, and friends to plan to participate in all of the events of the day.  On Sunday morning, September 16, we will recognize Dr. Furr and his family in the worship service. That afternoon a beautiful reception is planned for them from 4:00 to 5:30 in the church Fellowship Hall.

A love offering will be presented to the Furrs that day. If you would like to contribute to the love offering, make your check payable to Vestavia Hills Baptist Church and mark it “Furr Family Love Offering.” Plan to make your contribution by Sunday, September 9, so it can be included in the check that we present to the Furrs on the 16th.

Additionally, you are invited to write a note or letter to the Furrs and bring that with you to the reception on the afternoon of the 16th.  There will be a designated basket where you can place your notes of appreciation and remembrances.

Please make your plans to attend on September 16 and invite your friends and any former members you know to join us on that day. We have been blessed by this family and we plan to show them our love and respect for 25 years of service to our congregation.
