Dennis & Joan Retirement

Spread the love

35 Years of Faithful Service

June 7, 2020

Dear Friends, Family, and Members of Central Church of Christ,

It’s an exciting and bittersweet time for Central Church of Christ.  Just as we welcome Thayer Wallace (and his family) as our new minister, after 35 years of faithful service to Central Church of Christ, Denny has decided to take retirement.

A retirement celebration has been planned for July 26th.  We will have a time of fellowship that day from 2-6 in the new building with light refreshments being served.  This will be Denny’s last Sunday with us as our minister. Denny and Joan’s sons and their families will also be with us that day.

We want to give them a token of appreciation for their years of ministry. We, the elders felt that a monetary gift would be the most fitting gift for them to use to help start their retirement.   We would like to present them with a memory book also and this is where we need your help.  We are asking that you submit a thank you, a special memory, or a photo that we can use in the memory book.  You can submit your monetary donations, photos, and memories in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided.   We are asking that you return your items for the memory book by July 1st.

This is an exciting time for the Dawes family, please take time to pray for them as they start this new chapter.

The Elders,

Dennis Stevens, Mark Scott, Jon Peters, & Russ Sommers


Please send memories or monetary gifts to:

Mark and Lori Scott
87 Edendale Road
Portsmouth, Ohio 45662
or call 740-456-6649 with any questions.
