Father of The Year
“Happy Father’s Day” at Sloan UMC
“Be strong in the Lord; stand firm in the faith;
be men of courage; be strong.”
I Corinthians 16:13
Sloan UMC celebrated Father’s Day with the presentation of its “FATHER OF THE YEAR” honors by Mr. Harold Hempstead, President of the United Methodist Men. Mr. Hempstead shared highlights of the service and commitment of this year’s honoree – MR. RUSSELL GRAHAM. Though Mr. Graham, husband to Rev. Nadine Graham, is a relatively new member to the Sloan Family, he has wasted no time in getting on board to share and serve as a committed steward to the work of making disciples for Christ.
All of the fathers in attendance were gifted with caps containing the logo – “Men of God Make a Difference” from the Sloan UMC Family. The “Father’s Day” message was shared by Ms. Patricia A. Jefferson, Lay Leader, from the topic – “Fathers Matter”.
