On August 18 at 6 p.m. at Grace Trinity UCC (5200 Oxford Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19124), the Philadelphia Association will be hosting a retirement party for our former pastor, the Rev. Dr. Geneva Butz. She is retiring at the end of June from her service as the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference’s Associate Conference Minister.
Our own Harvey Thompson will be the emcee of the festivities. Let us then join him at the celebration. It will give us all a chance to give thanks for Geneva and the good works here at Old First and abroad in the wider church. While not the end of her ministry, of course, it’s still important to stop and give thanks for her work at this moment of her retirement.
Further details and reservation information will follow as soon as its available.
