By To the editor:
Well, it’s happened! Almost thirty-four years have flown by since we held our first church service at Family Christian Center in Palmer. Peter Gallardo has been the only senior pastor during that time, and now he has decided, for health reasons, to step down and pass the baton to a younger man. We welcome a fine and qualified man, Jimiah Goltz, as he pastors the congregation for the next many years and invite you to come and hear who the Lord sent us. We, the Gallardos, count it an honor to have served our church and community as pastors. We started the church with the idea that families could find direction for their lives and hear the Word of God taught. Thank you to all those who have come alongside us to make this a blessed season of our lives. We couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and fabulous congregation! Our final service as pastors will be Sunday, October 10, and although it will be with mixed emotions, we know it’s the right time to make this change. We will remain in the area, enjoying our wonderful Mat-Su Valley and serving in whatever capacity the Lord has next.
Pastor Peter and Janet Gallardo,
