Starkdale Presbyterian Church, 4600 Sunset Blvd., Steubenville, invites its neighboring Christian communities on Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. to meet and welcome the Rev. Bobbyjon Bauman, the new pastor to youth and young adults.
The event will include a pizza luncheon, fellowship for all ages, pony rides and inflated apparatus for children.
Bauman and his wife, Renee, and their children Faith, Emily Grace, Isaac and Nathan have relocated here from Madison, Wis., where he had served as pastor of education and youth ministries for 14 years. "His ministry at Starkdale, since the beginning of September, has already made a huge and positive difference, attracting community youth through topics that concern them, mission trips, games and more," a church spokesperson said.
For information, contact the church at (740) 264-5309 any time Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
