Gilpin Retirement


The sanctuary was filled to capacity for the retirement service for Pastor Gary Gilpin at the Aldenville Baptist Church. Church family members along with people from the community and lots of out of town guests came for the celebration.


It probably won’t surprise you to know the service was filled with music and singing. The congregation along with the church choir offered many praise and worship songs as well as traditional hymns.


Rev. Dr. Frank Frischkorn along with Rev. Dr. David Laubach and the Deacons of the church called Pastor Gary and Lisa forward to lay hands on them and offer a blessing as they move into this next stage of their life journey.


The church family honored Pastor Gary and Lisa with a beautiful retirement celebration at nearby Camp Ladore.


Pastor Gary and his wife Lisa will soon be moving to their recently built new house in Florida.
