Farewell Lunch for the Williams Family


After morning worship services on June 2, join us to celebrate the ministry of Rev. Tommy Williams and his family on their last Sunday at St. Paul’s. All are invited to a Farewell Lunch in Fondren Hall, 12:15–1:30 pm.

On the menu . . . This family-friendly lunch will be held in Fondren Hall. We’ll serve up delicious food in a laid-back atmosphere with grilled burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers prepared by the Men’s Lectionary Bible Study. 

Expressing appreciation . . . St. Paul’s Staff-Parish Relations Committee will provide a card-writing and love offering station for the Williams family. We’ll enjoy special music and a slideshow tribute as well.

Calling all kids! . . . Parents, because we expect a sizable crowd, we’re making special plans for children to be supervised and enjoy fun activities together. Please check in your children in the Jones Building Lobby to join their age-based groups (non-walkers, 2–3 years, pre-K–1st grade, and 2nd–5th grade).

The children will eat lunch from 12:15 to 12:45 pm in Jones Building classrooms and then go outside on the Playground from 12:45 to 1:30 pm for playtime, face-painting, and snow cones provided by Kona Ice Truck.

Also, please save the date for a Welcome Reception for new senior pastor Rev. Dr. Jeff McDonald and his wife Lenee, on their first Sunday at St. Paul’s on July 7, at 12:15 pm. It will be a meet-and-greet reception with light refreshments.

If you have any questions or to lend your help for either of these goodbye/hello events, please contact SPRC representative Denise Childres via
