August 12th was an amazing day in the life of FPC—we celebrated the ordination and installation of our new pastor, Rev. Bruce McVey. The sanctuary and flowers were beautiful. The food was outstanding (folks were even asking for recipes!). The church presented Bruce with a red stole (red is the liturgical color for ordination and for Pentecost). Bruce exclaimed, “I cannot tell you how thankful I am for the hospitality this church extended this weekend! FPC made my friends and family feel so welcome.”
Bruce welcomed approximately 25 friends and family to worship with us that day. They came from as far away as Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, Texas, and Alabama.
We welcomed several members from other churches in the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee to participate in the ordination. Bruce’s former pastor, Rev. Rebekah Maul, preached the sermon on Ephesians 5:15-20—“Sing, Even If You Can’t Carry a Tune” — for the service.
When reflecting on the weekend, Bruce said that he felt the church really embodied these words from 1 Peter 4:
“8 Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Be hospitable to one another without complaining. 10 Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. 11 Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”
