Congregants plan a covered dish dinner after morning worship June 14 to thank and bid farewell to Pastor David and Katherine Ragland as they leave Peabody United Methodist Church.
Church members are being encouraged to bring a dish to share and “stay for the time of remembering and celebrating the last nine years,” member Noreen Weems said. “We have been blessed to have Pastor Dave and Katherine serve the Lord so faithfully at our church and throughout the community. They will be missed.”
The Raglands have purchased a home in Ottawa and will retire there.
