Rick Horner, who has served the past five years on the staff of the Martinsburg, Penna., Grace Brethren Church, has felt God’s calling to help revitalize the Conemaugh, Penna., Grace Brethren Church. Because of that calling, the Horners are completing their Martinsburg ministry on September 30, 2011.
Martinsburg pastor Kurt Miller said, “This Sunday we will be saying ‘Thank You’ to Pastor Rick and Bettie Horner for their five years of faithful ministry among our church family. Pastor Rick has served faithfully as the Pastor of Assimilation and Senior-Adult Ministries. He was also called on to serve as the interim Lead Pastor soon after arriving in Martinsburg. Bettie assisted in the development of First Place for Health and directed Women of Grace and other women’s ministries.”
The Martinsburg church will host a farewell reception for the Horners this Sunday evening from 5 – 8 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
