Farewell, Pam and Andrew!

One of the hardest things to do in life is to say "goodbye" to dear friends.  It is even harder when these dear friends are folks with whom you've labored together in serving Christ and his church.

Dr. Pam Compton was Christ Reformed's organist for more than ten years.  Pam is not only a great organist (frankly, she's the best!), I cannot tell you how many times she helped me with hymn selection, selected better tunes for congregational singing, and prevented me from otherwise embarrassing myself due to my musical ignorance.  Pam, thanks for every note!

Andrew served Christ Reformed for the past five years as our associate pastor.  Talk about a faithful shepherd!  Andrew preached Christ boldly, and faithfully counseled, married, buried, and tended the flock with that rare and God-given balance between strong words and words of compassion.  Andrew, what a great blessing and a joy it was to serve with you as a co-laborer in the gospel ministry.

Pam and Andrew, I cannot thank you enough for your years of faithful service and hard work.  To a person, our congregation feels the same way.  We are praying for a wonderful, new chapter in your lives.

We will miss you both dearly, but we send you on your way with our heartiest blessings and we wish you well in your new endeavors in Indiana as Andrew takes up the task of teaching Old Testament at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. 

Until we meet again!

Yea, verily. We will miss all the Comptons. It feels odd to want Pam and Andrew to stay with us while realizing the post of OT professor is also a great use of Andrew's skills ("right up his alley"). The GEMS girls will miss Hanna and Mia. By the time we see Hope and Levi next time we probably won't recognize them, even if it's only one year later. May our Heavenly Father continue to bless them richly!
