Retirement Celebration for Beverly Peeler January 9

November 14, 2020 Published by Neil Topliffe

Please place January 9, 2021 from 1-3 pm on your calendars. That is when we will be celebrating the 20 plus years of faithful support given so generously by our Michigan Region Administrative Assistant, Beverly Peeler. She will retire the end of this year. It will be a Zoom virtual party with participation by church members, clergy and leaders across the state joining via computer and phone.

Beverly retires the end of December after 20 plus years on staff.

“Beverly has been the voice when you called the office, helping with camp and church questions,” noted Diana Payton, one of the planners of the celebration. “She’s that one who over the years has been making flyers and planning, signing you in at most events, and so much more. Always there to assist, always loving and giving.” Other members of the planning committee are Mitzie Hall and Julie Drews.  

To participate in the virtual celebration, register now HERE.

The online celebration will include presentations to Beverly, including a monetary gift to start her on her retirement journey. If you would like to contribute, we have two ways for you to do so. Please note, this is NOT a tax-deductible gift, but a gift of the spirit and heart. A love gift to Beverly.
