Pastor Mark Cornwell and the Grace Brethren Church of West Kittanning, Pennsylvania, will welcome back two native sons this Sunday, June 11, when the church is graciously sponsoring a “Walking Like Jesus Did” day with Larry McCall, Terry White, and their families.
Larry McCall, Grace College and Seminary graduate and pastor of Christ’s Covenant Church in Winona Lake, IN, is the author of Walking Like Jesus Did—Studies in the Character of Christ, which was recently published by BMH Books. He will speak on that subject in the Kittanning church in the 10:45 a.m. worship service this Sunday.
McCall and his wife, the former Gladine Rupp, are both from the Kittanning church. McCall’s parents are Connie and Carl McCall, and Gladine’s parents are Chuck and Ruth Rupp, also of Kittanning.
Terry White, BMH publisher, grew up in the Kittanning church where he was the church pianist and organist until leaving for Grace College. He is the son of the late E. M. and Helen White, both of whom were leaders in the Kittanning church.
White and his wife, Sharon, are music graduates of Grace College. They will play a short program of piano/organ, two-keyboard, and piano four-hands special music in Sunday’s service.
At 2 p.m. the church is hosting an informal reception in the church social hall where Larry McCall will be available to autograph copies of his book after short talks by Larry and Gladine McCall and Terry White. Refreshments will be served, and Pastor Cornwell invites all to participate.
