I Timothy 5:17
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The time has come for us to honor our Pastor and his family. This year marks the 16th year he and his family have been here at Greenleaf Christian Church (DOC), and he has selflessly labored for 26 years in Ministry. We consider it a blessing to have such a devoted and loving Pastor. We enthusiastically celebrate and esteem our Pastor and his family and it gives us great joy to glorify the gift that God has placed amongst us.
Pastor Barber is a Servant of honor and integrity, who not only is committed to his congregation, but graciously serves the local and distant communities with his heart. He is a man of dedication, seeking justice and is energized to fight for what is right. Let us join in together to celebrate a Minister of the Gospel; Pastor William J. Barber II, his wife Deacon Rebecca Barber and family.
We know that Pastor Barber thinks very highly of you, and the encouragement you have offered to him over the years has not only been a blessing to him personally, but in an indirect way, of great blessing to us here at Greenleaf Christian Church Disciples of Christ. On behalf of Greenleaf Christian Church Pastors Aide Ministry and Congregation we cordially invite you and your congregation or members of your organization to participate with us in honoring this Minister of the Gospel, “The Celebration of Life” of our Pastor, wife and family.
We are asking you to come out and join in with us to celebrate this Remarkable, “Anointed Man of God.” Services are as follows: July 23 (7:00pm), July 24 (7:00pm), July 25 (Picnic, 5:00pm-until) and July 26 (10am Sunday Morning Worship and 5:00pm Sunday Evening Worship).
