GreenvilleOH_inlineGREENVILLE, Ohio—Faith Baptist Church honored two of its members, Fred and Sharon Harpest, for 40 years of ministry with the church’s Awana Clubs.

On Sunday, April 24, Pastor Bill Baker and Wil Raby, chairman of the deacons, presented the Harpests with a wall hanging depicting a long pathway through the woods. “Every time you look at this path,” Baker told the couple on behalf of the church, “we want you to think of all of the boys and girls you helped follow God’s way for them over the past 40 years.”

The Harpests have served together in Awana throughout their marriage, as they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in November 2015. They are now commanders of the program, which ministers on Wednesday nights to children age 3 through students in sixth grade.
