On June 23, the AFBC family is invited to join in a day of celebration as we honor Dale’s 40 years of ministry (1973–2013). We will honor him in the worship service and join together for lunch following morning worship to share in a time of thanksgiving and reflection. Dale joined AFBC in 1973 when a loaf of bread cost 27 cents and a gallon of gas cost about 40 cents. In 40 years Dale has ministered alongside 5 pastors and numerous interims. His creative gifts are recognized by many throughout the community and state, but this church family has been blessed each week for 40 years as he continually finds new and uplifting ways to help us worship. Please mark your calendars now to be a part of this special day.
