A Word From Rev. Chris Rathbone:

Well friends it has been a difficult few days. The word is true, April 12th will be my last Sunday as pastor of one of the greatest churches I have ever known. God has shown me its time to go. Nothing is wrong, so don't believe the things people will probably say! After much prayer I feel that my work at Bear Creek is finished and it is time for another to take the helm of this wonderful church. God has truly blessed me to be the pastor for so many years. This fall would have been 14 years. I have literally grew up spiritually at Bear Creek. They have loved and supported my family in such a way that I could never express my appreciation enough. God has done a great work at the church and we have just been privileged to be a part of it! My family covets everyone's prayers for us and the church as we go through this transition time. I have no plans except to wait on the Lord and see what He is doing. My family and I are going to spend some time together and need to allow our hearts to mend. We love Bear Creek so much and it will always be our home. This is one of the hardest decisions I have ever made but God has given me peace. Love to all and remember, "It's all about Jesus!"
