Bruce and Nancy Westerdahl, as we celebrate the many years of Bruce's ministry.

BPUMC Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich
 
The service this past week was all about Bruce and Nancy Westerdahl.  Bruce first came to work at Keuka College, and became a lay minister, serving BPUMC for over four years beginning in the late 1980's.  He then pastored at the Keuka Lake Baptist Church at Crosby for many years.  The congregation told stories of Bruces' service, especially his compassion with funerals and family issues, as he spent time to individually know everyone.  He also was instrumental in getting our modern choir organized. Thank you Bruce and Nancy for all of your time with us, and continuing to be part of our congregation.

Pastor Sandi asked the kids as they put pennies in the large jar, if they knew the significance of the Backpack program, which the pennies support.  The kids have helped with this mission for years.
