On June 26, 2016, we celebrated Pastor Mark Ulrickson's retirement from over 41 years of ministry. The fellowship hall was beautifully decorated and everyone ate a variety of pies donated by the congregation. Rev. Sharon Rhodes-Wickett served as emcee. Speakers from several of the churches Pastor Mark has served (Garden Grove, Northridge and Los Altos) spoke of how his ministry changed their lives, videos of his ministry were shown, the Praise Band played one of Mark's favorite songs and the Sanctuary Choir sung a tribute song written by Christie Kahler. It was a beautiful afternoon of reminiscing and wishing Mark and Trish well as they head into the next phase of their lives.
