Cole to retire from Town & Country Christian Church
December 27, 2019
For almost two decades, Pastor Paul Cole has held the reins of Town and Country Christian Church. At the end of this month, Cole will retire. His final sermon will be delivered this Sunday. The worship service begins at 10:30 a.m.
Cole has been a unique voice in the Alva religious community for nearly two decades. His many devotions published in Alva Review-Courier always seemed to express a very clearly focused message designed to help us all manage the storms of our lives.
For example, in his Thanksgiving column he wrote, "We look up and we start praising God in the middle of the storm because we know God controls the winds and waves. He also controls the evil powers and He will annihilate them and by His spoken word He blesses us His people. For that, we praise God and celebrate this Thanksgiving." Cole seems to care very deeply about helping all of us find God in what Cole calls "a Godless world."
Look for a profile on Paul and Margaret Cole in the New Year. In the meantime, go hear his last sermon. Surely, that will be one to remember.
