It was a wonderful, emotional service today.  As we celebrated decades of Pastor Tom and Jean’s ministry, it also brought us to his retirement as Senior Minister.  Pastor Tom is, and will always be, the founding Pastor of New Song Community Church.

Jean has worn the hat of Children’s Ministry Leader, companion, friend, encourager, organizer and so many others!  She has stood beside Pastor Tom through good times and bad.

Our Senior Pastor is now officially Pastor Derick Dimry.  Pastor Derick has been Associate Pastor, Corporate Prayer Leader and leading and assisting in many other activities for several years at New Song.

Pastor Derick’s wife, Pamela, is also very active at New Song.  Pamela heads up a Christian dance troupe known as Adoration in Motion. Pamela also leads an exercise group called Gracefully Fit and the Gracefully Fit Stretch class.  We are blessed to have them.

We were privileged to have Dr, Barry Banfrey as our guest speaker and Trinity College President Mark O’Farrell.

Here are some pictures of the day’s activities.
