Today was Bro. Steve Skagg's last sermon as pastor of Muldraugh Hill Baptist Church. It was Divine Intervention that he returned to serve as our Interim Pastor upon the sudden death of our previous pastor of 32 years. It was Bro. Steve who guided us through the transition and helped us all through the shock and grieving process. He later answered the call to be the Pastor of MHBC and was installed on May 5, 2013. So many things have taken place in that time! A lot of new ideas nd carry over of old ones. We at MHBC are so thankful for his part in all the activities and especially thankful for his compassionate presence while helping us through ups and downs, surgeries, births, weddings, deaths and other life events; and patiently sitting with us in the waiting rooms all those times. Today we had a reception/meal in honor of Bro. Steve and Shirley to thank them for their service the last 5 years. We presented them with a love offering and two Cracker Barrel rocking chairs with their names and the church name engraved in them and placement of a UK Wildcat emblem, Bro. Steve's team. We wish them well in their retirement and transition into the next chapter of their lives as they continue to serve God in a different capacity. They will be missed greatly!
