Share Your Memories

This year OBPC has experienced changes unlike we have ever experienced before, and we now deal with the sadness of Pastor Mike’s retirement and Pastor Leigh’s new calling in Georgia. At the same time we are grateful for the memories made and ministry work experienced with these two wonderful mentors and friends.

Therefore, we invite you to share with us your thoughts, feeling, and memories from your time spent with Pastor Mike and Pastor Leigh. Your submission will remain private unless you give consent for it to be shared, and you can choose to be anonymous if you wish.

We hope this will provide our OBPC family a opportunity to remember and celebrate, while healing and looking forward to what the future holds.

Twelve years ago, when I moved from the East of the world to live in the West, too many unknowns made me confused and helpless. An accident gave me the opportunity to stand with the chorus members and listen to your powerful voice every week. Fortunately, the precious time of my life has been spent with you. I hope you can enjoy a new life, and we will not forget those times and you-God bless you

Although we have only been members for a short amount of time, I can to feel like it was my family and that was totally because of Pastor Leigh and Pastor Mike, they were so welcoming and we were honored to know them.

As longtime friends of Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church, as Snowbirds, we have appreciated the Sunday Services & Fellowship there…The wonderful Choir & Openings by Jamie recognizing Birthdays & Anniversaries we’re unique…AND the theatrical presentations & Social events in the fellowship Hall are memorable & a lovely way of uniting people…My husband Bob related to Dr Foley’s messages specially.

I will cherish the genuine and authentic love and care Pastor Leigh showed to ALL members of every age. She reminded us that we are able to think outside of the box and explore new avenues in our ministry, without losing our foundational identity. Pastor Leigh encouraged OBPC to walk beside her in faith instead of just following her. She has given us amazing tools for the future!

Pastor Mike: 14 years ago Judy and I came south after retirement to spend 3 winter months in Florida. We searched for a church and finally found yours. You are a special person in our lives. We enjoyed going to OBPC, but you made all the difference. As seniors and as devout church goers over the years, we have never found a pastor who could deliver such powerful messages as you did. thank you.
