Farewell to Nancy Page

The Sugar Grove Presbyterian Church would like to extend an invitation to the community to say farewell to Pastor Nancy Page. Pastor Nancy has been involved with the little church for 15 years and has been the senior pastor and led the church for the last five years. Christmas Eve Services will be held at 9 p.m. and Christmas Day services will be held at 11 a.m.  These will be the last days in Sugar Grove for Pastor Nancy as she will be relocating to West Virginia to be near her family. If you have gotten to know Nancy in our community worship gatherings, please attend either service to wish her well. Christmas morning at 10 a.m. there will be a coffee time with Nancy prior to the service.
