Looking back on this past Sunday, I can say that there was a lot of emotions. There was sadness, joy, thanks, praise, and love to name some. It was just a great time to reflect on what Brandon and Jessica have done for the church. The impact they had on the community will never be forgotten. You could feel the spirit of the Lord moving throughout the service, the way the music way played, the gathering around Brandon and Jessica praying for them.
There were tears shed, thanks were given, and it was just a great to sit back and reflect. Sure there will be a void now, but at the same time, I know that College Park Covenant Church will be alright! The groundwork that Brandon and Jessica have done will continue to go on. We have great ministries within the church that were started when Brandon was here. I've noticed that a lot of new people and families (a lot of young families especially) have started coming to the church and they have connected with the church through Brandon.
Overall, Sunday was a great celebration, a great sendoff, and more of a "see you later" rather than goodbye to the Shurr family. They will be missed and we all thank them for their selfless work at College Park Covenant Church!
