From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:
We had our last Sunday with Pastor Nate and his family on Sept. 15th. We gathered for special worship to commemorate this day.
Our 10:00 a.m. gathering was bilingual, and featured music from both the Spanish worship praise group and our Sanctuary Choir. You can watch that gathering here.
Members of our church council laid hands on Pastor Nate and his family as we sent them off to their next congregation with God's blessings.
We then had a luncheon where members of the church shared their thanks for the ministry of Pastor Nate and his wife Dámaris. Both Pastor and Mrs. Allen shared their own heartfelt thanks with the congregation.
We also got hear Pastor Nate rap one last time.

Did we mention we will miss Natalia and Yaretzi? We know the children of our congregation will miss them.
As Pastor Nate said in his last sermon, this is not goodbye, this is farewell, see you next time. We will miss you Pastor Nate and your family. May God bless you and your ministry.
