Yesterday it was determined that there would be an official anniversary celebration on June 30th. It was 45 years ago on that day that I began my pastoral ministry. There was an initial attempt by my wife and daughter to try to keep this event a secret, but since our family has always worked as a team, it was decided this would likely be our best option for this event as well.
If you have been blessed, benefited, or helped by any of the things our family has done over these years we would love to hear from you. While this is about me in a sense, I do not want it to be so. My wife has been an active part of everything that has happened over the years. She has always been a gifted pastor and preacher in her own right. From the very beginning we have worked as a team. When my son was home, he played an important role in what we did as a team. Our daughter is not only a gifted musician, but also highly capable in terms of technology and it is her gifts and talents that enable us to do the things we are currently doing. Please feel free to send cards, notes, emails, videos, testimonials as we will be collecting them for sharing on the special day. Go to BobMcLellan.com/anniversary for information and details on how you can participate.
We will also appreciate permission to share with others what you send, in order to help more people say YES to the relationship with God, through His Son Jesus and live their lives fully committed to Him.
June 30th will be my first Sunday back in the pulpit since my surgery. Yes there will be time to reminisce, but I will also be introducing a vision that will extend over the next 2 decades. For those who will be on location there will be a BBQ following the service and then a come and go desert gathering from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
The service will be live-streamed at: www.SayYestotheRelationship.com beginning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern. We will be on Face Book Live as well, but the schedule for this aspect has yet to be determined. More information will be forth coming.
I am thankful and grateful for the many people my life has interconnected with over the years and the various media through which this has happened. Blessings to each one of you. I hope you will connect with us and share in this celebration.
