a message for Old South Haven Family

Dear Old South Haven Family and Friends,
This is to let you know that our worship service this Sunday will be an opportunity for us to join together in our grief over Tom's passing, and to express our gratitude for all the ways he has  touched our lives.
Instead of  following the normal order of worship, we invite you to bring a thought, a remembrance, a hymn suggestion, a prayer, a meaningful physical token, or simply your love, to share with our church family, so saddened by the loss of our dear pastor.
We'll let spirit guide us in this time of joining.
I look forward to being with you all at this sad time
and to honoring Tom's life, his  embodiment of an "open heart, open mind, anchored in Christ's love".
Deb Mayo (Elder and Worship Committee member)

Pastor Tom Philipp Died

It is with heavy hearts that we share that our beloved Pastor Tom passed away early this morning, June 13, 2018, at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital. A number of us were blessed to be able to see and sing to Tom last evening. He seemed at peace and aware of Old South Haven's love for him. Arrangements are not yet made but the service will be at OSHC at the end of next week.
