Kevin Hershey’s Ordination

On Sunday, June 20th, Burlington Presbyterian Church was blessed to host a rare and wonderful event in the life of the church. Our member, Kevin Hershey, was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church. The service was profound and meaningful. There was music, words of wisdom, the laying on of hands, the charge to the new pastor, and finally a celebration of communion at the hands of the church’s newest minister.

After the service had concluded, we all celebrated in a reception. One of the highlights of the reception was a cake in the shape of the State of New York (Kevin’s new church home!), with a chocolate reproduction of Kevin’s trademark hat.

Here are some pictures of the celebration!
