Saying Good Bye to the Otis Family

Pastor John Otis, and his family, were recently called to a new Church in Burlington, North Carolina. John Otis had been the Evangelist to Corpus Christi for over 15 years nearly 5 of which were spent living in Texas. His ministry was a blessing to this Church and we wish him the fullness of God's grace as he begins his work in Burlington.

Since the Otis relocated the 1st of September we threw a going away party, TEXAS style, for them the end of August. Here are some of the pictures from the event.

Texas size cakes along with a plaque of recognition

A Texas Bar-B-Que was hosted at the M's house

It was a huge spread and we were blessed to have several friends, whom the Otis' had met over the years, who came to share in the farewell.
