“The evening worship service, with over 160 people attending, was said by some to be solemn, respectful, meaningful and beautiful,” said White Oak Senior Pastor Tom Shoger. “It was a wonderful time of worship for a very special event in both Mackay’s and the church’s life.”

Mackay Smith’s parents, David and Tracey Smith, and his grandmother Betsy Smith were present. His father, a ruling elder at First ARP Gastonia (NC), actively participated in the service with the commission. Rev. Smith will soon have a helpmate in ministry; he and Rachel Hunt of the Lake Wales ARP Church will be married on May 4.

White Oak Women’s Ministry coordinated a reception after the service.
