On July 10, 2015, The Peoples Church held a celebration service for Charles and Hilary Price as Charles officially ended his time as the Teaching Pastor at the church.
In each of the three services, guest speakers, musicians and greetings both on stage and via video wished the Prices well as they transition into their new roles with the church as Ministers-at-Large.
Those in attendance received a prayer card for Charles and Hilary outlining their travel and speaking engagements for the remainder of 2016 and 2017. You can download a copy here.
Charles and Hilary were presented with gifts from the congregation and the Peoples Ministry Inc. Board of Directors including a travel voucher and a copy of one video containing greetings from the congregation and another with greetings from their friends around the world.
They were also presented with a frame containing a photo of the congregation with them at each of the three services from earlier in the year.
Stuart and Jill Briscoe, long-time friends of both Charles and Hilary were invited guests and shared some words of encouragement for them. Listen to their message below:
Worship Arts Pastor, Kellen Jones, crafted a special arrangement of Don McLean’s Bye Bye American Pie, changing the title and words ever so slightly and performed Bye Bye Charles and Hilary Price much to the delight of both Charles, Hilary and the congregation.
Charles and Hilary were moved by the support and well wishes the church family had for them. They shared some thoughts with the congregation as well.
