Randy Turner

The Pastor's Pen

This year, 2022, is a milestone year for me in many ways. As of this year, I have been a believer for 60 years. I have been ordained for 50 years. And I have been Pastor of First Baptist Church of Laurel for 30 years. Occasionally someone will ask me, especially as the anniversary approaches, if I am going to retire on my 30th anniversary. That is certainly a fair question since I am now 68 years of age. In our last Deacon’s Meeting, I announced my retirement effective November 13 of this year.

Please begin now to pray for the Pastor Search Committee and for that person that God would have serve here as Pastor and for a smooth transition.

Grace and Peace!
