If you missed Steve’s retirement party, you missed one of the best events in the history of Flagstaff Christian Fellowship! What a wonderful, special and blessed evening! Preston Korn did the planning and organization. We had a delicious meal, catered by Simply Delicious, (well named). The entire sanctuary was packed with not a seat left. The tables were perfectly done, with Steve and Marla in mind, with burlap and navy runners and a centerpiece of local greenery and pine cones. All three of Steve and Marla’s children spoke, Christa, and Daniel, with Joy sending a video from overseas. The college group acted as servers for the meal. People on Steve’s sermon list sent notes of appreciation and those ran on the overhead before and during the meal. Those in attendance brought cards and gift cards. Preston and his Mailynn created a game called, “How well do you know Pastor Cole?” It was hilarious! The speakers were short and sweet, Ron Talbott, an elder on Steve’s original search committee, Stan Johnson our associate pastor who retired last year, worship leader Bo Gonzalez and our new pastor Dave Berry. Steve spoke for a few minutes as well. My favorite part of the evening? Watching all those men cry!
