Southern California Pastoral Couples Fellowship

Jan 4, 2005

Bellflower, CA, Brethren Church pastor Tom Hocking, who is currently moderator of the Southern California-Arizona District, recently got district pastors and their wives together for a post-Christmas couples dinner party at a bowling alley. Grace Brethren national organizations (including Brethren Missionary Herald Co.) contributed books, CDs, videos, candy, nuts, mugs, shirts, combs and more which Tom and his wife assembled into 20 gift bags. Tom says “It was a pretty impressive display of our Fellowship’s commitment to encouraging pastoral couples.” He reported that, despite a storm the night of the party, there were 32 people present, and he says they had a “wonderful time of great food, lots of fun, good fellowship and a sweet time of sharing and praying in small groups.” Third prize for best score was won by Steve Munday (Simi Valley), and Roy Halberg got the one-day registration to Equip 05 (2nd Place). The grand prize was won by the district’s newest pastor, Wayne Ayer (Norwalk Grace Brethren Church), a fully-paid Hume Lake Pastoral Couples Conference with premium lodging next September.
