A Celebration of the Service of Dr. Lane Alderman - When the Wind Blows - Sunday, June 14, 2015 - Dr. Lane Alderman
A service of Celebration of the work and ministry of Dr. Lane Alderman
The Apostle Paul said it best when he wrote to the Philippians...
"I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:3-6)
Paul only visited in Philippi for short periods of time, but he captures perfectly my feelings after over twenty years of ministry among you. I've said it hundreds of times, but I need to say it one more time... Roswell Presbyterian Church is the healthiest, most vibrant, mission-minded large church I know. You all are an incredible group of people, and I am so thankful for the opportunity I have had to serve in the ministry God has put before us.
Thank you for this day of celebration and remembrance! I'm grateful to be able to share in this service with you, and I want you to know that I will be continuing to hold you in my prayers as you move on with your amazing staff and with a new Senior Pastor whom God is already preparing to come and serve with you.
We are each moving on, but we move on with this always present reminder... God will be with us every step of the way!
Dr. Lane Alderman
Pastor of RPC from 1994 to 2015
