Another local faith community is hosting a celebration of longtime leaders who are about to retire. From West Seattle Christian Church in The Junction:

West Seattle Christian Church invites the community to celebrate Alan and Lois Gardner’s retirement on June 26th in the church’s Activity Center. Since the 1970s they have been a special part of the West Seattle community and the church. Alan served first as Minister of Christian Education and later as Preaching Minister. Lois (aka “Mrs. Gardner”) is beloved by her former preschool and kindergarten students at West Seattle Christian School. They’ve touched so many. Please join in honoring them. The service is at 9:30 am Sunday and there will be a social time after the service.

The church and Activity Center are at 4400 42nd SW.

    So grateful to these two!! I moved to WS 7 years ago and had the privilege to know them from church and at the preschool. So grateful to both of them for their service. Mr. Gardiner is a true leader and has such a cheerful heart. Mrs. Gardner was such a wonderful preschool & Sunday school teacher to my boys.  We are going to miss them like crazy, but look forward to seeing them in the neighborhood! Friends in the community, please join us on Sunday to celebrate this amazing couple. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
