The New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Rockaway Beach, held an Appreciation Luncheon on August 22 to recognize and show appreciation to the senior members of the church for their many years of tireless, dedicated and committed Christian service.

"We must give them their flowers while they can still smell them," said Rev. Larry L. Shell Sr., Pastor.

The church honored 27 of its senior members at the luncheon, which included a sermon by Shell and solos expressing gratitude, followed by the presentation of a gold-sealed Certificate of Appreciation to each honoree.
