You are invited! Fifteen years ago, our Pastor’s daughter, Christa Mercer Springstead, began a journey toward ordination. That journey began with the love and support of this very congregation. Christa is now a pastor in Norfolk and her congregation is organizing a celebration in honor of her ordination at this year’s annual conference. They are inviting all at Hickory Church to attend. June 17th, 5:30 pm, at St. John’s UMC, 2715 Greendale Ave., Norfolk, VA 23518. To RSVP, go to the Facebook event page, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 757-587-4332.
