Planted By God's Waters
Like trees planted by the waters, the 2011 Texas Conference retirees shall not be moved. Their impact upon the church shall not be moved. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve the Texas Annual Conference, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to retire,” said one of the 27 ministers who are entering a new season of service.
Through the retirement service worship liturgy, the annual conference affirmed its gratitude for these clergy: We give thanks for God’s faithfulness; for all the blessings we have received through your ministry.
For the joy of serving with you in the ministry we share, for lessons learned, for hopes fulfilled, and for all that has been accomplished through God’s grace.
