Nonagenarian Celebration

So what is a “nonagenarian” ?

Someone graced with the gift of living into their nineties.

Faith UMC is lucky to have eight such special people as part of its congregation.  On Sunday, April 29th, our congregation came together to celebrate the many years of loving support and contributions made by these amazing members of our church with an event themed: “An April Shower of Appreciation”.  After worship service, church family, along with many extended family members, gathered in  Fellowship Hall under the décor of colorful umbrellas decorated with hanging raindrops, for a catered luncheon in the honor of these beloved members.

Honorees present included:  Pat Keller, Norma St. Clair, Ivadelle Gummo, Hosia Sharp, Macie Waller and Irene Johncox.  (Henry Barrie and Ralph Ressler were unable to be present for the event, but were celebrated in absentia.)  Brief biographies for each honoree were read aloud by friends in the congregation.  Our Chancel Choir sang “Just a Closer Walk with Thee” accompanied by Pat Keller’s grandson on piano.  Another congregation member read a poem about being in “the 90’s” from the stage (originally built by Ralph Ressler and Marlin Gummo in 1998).  A beautiful rendition of “Amazing Grace” was sung by the Jelowski family ~ with an impromptu dance by an honoree’s great-granddaughter that stole the show but expressed the joy all were feeling.  Another beloved congregation member graciously offered hand sewn “Ditty Bags” in a choice of many colors and designs as a gift for each honoree ~ several extras were given away as door prizes to other lucky attendees.  Honorees were presented with a token gift of a cloisonné cross necklace reminiscent of the window in Faith’s sanctuary, and asked to pose for a photo with the cake decorated with umbrellas.

Thank you to all who helped with this event.  It truly was an expression of love by all who helped, for the honorees who have given so much over these many collective years and continue to be an active part of who Faith is today.

We are truly blessed to have them as part of Faith’s family.
