First Baptist Church of Hartford held a surprise 30th Anniversary service and fellowship for Pastor Mike and Carole Gordon on Sunday evening April 17, 2005. Former Pastor Bob & Joan Johnson were present, as well as Pastor & Mrs. Robert Dow along with a number of visitors and former members. Also I was able to bring a greeting from the WFBC Churches. The church choir including some former members sang two numbers in addition to testimonies and other specials. Pastor Todd Werner of New Testament Baptist Church in Columbus brought the message, as Pastor Werner had been saved and discipled under the Gordon’s ministry. A wonderful feast was held following the service in the church fellowship hall. A great time was had by all!
