Hosted by Chaplain Jay & Nan Schock
They did a fabulous job of organizing the evening and decorating the chapel at Manor Church.
Their friends Ray and Lisa coordinated the silent auction which raised more than $700.00 for TFC.
People arrived early to find their assigned tables.
The delicious meal was catered by Nanalyn’s Full-Filling Feast.
Chaplain Jay welcomed everyone.
Pastor John (lead pastor of Manor Church) prayed a blessing on the evening and meal.
The Gabriels gave an amazing concert.
They are one of my favorite, local gospel groups – because they are quite talented and because Derek (right) is the son of my cousin Diane and her husband Keenan.
Will Stoner, a driver for Beam Farms, shared his testimony – of how the ABCs of Salvation (a regular section in TFC’s Highway News) helped him understand salvation through Christ.
Jeff Batzer, TFC’s Executive Vice President of Ministry Programs gave a ministry update.
Chaplain Jay asked the Elkton #1 team to come forward for prayer.
This is the chapel where Jay serves as lead chaplain.
Bunny O’Hare, TFC’s Director of Pastoral Care for Chaplains, anointed Chaplain Richard who will be leading a new ministry at the TA Travel Center near Bloomsbury, New Jersey. He has been serving and training at the Elkton #1 Chapel.
TFC had a chapel at the Bloomsbury truck stop for many years, but were asked to leave when there was major construction, and the general manager claimed there would not be room for a chapel.
We are excited that this truck stop is again open to TFC ministry.
Jay presented him with a journal…
…and a few joke gifts, because he has apparently lost or misplaced some things. 🙂
Jay gave an update of the ministry at the Life-Saver chapel.
Prayer for his and Nan’s Prayer and Advisory Team.
Then there was more music by the Gabriels.
The program closed with Jay and Nan thanking those who helped make the evening possible, and Pastor John praying for Jay and Nan and the ministry of TFC.
Jay and Nan wanted a picture of the TFC staff who were in attendance, so I found someone to take our picture.
It was certainly a delightful evening at Manor Church.
