A Happy Milestone Birthday

March 20, 2016 Allentown, PA

Ninety years young, Sister Doris Hoffman received a special birthday blessing surrounded by the Allentown congregation and family members from three generations. District Evangelist Doerner based his remarks on the encouraging words found in Isaiah 41:10 –“fear not, for I am with you…I will uphold you with My righteous hand.” Doris and her late husband were part of those asked in 1949 to establish a congregation in Allentown. With Doris by his side, he served as a priest there for 35 years, over 28 of which were as Rector. After service the congregation delighted in preparing a fellowship which included Doris’ favorite foods: Ham, mac & cheese, and asparagus. More joy continued on her actual birthday when all four of her children and her sister could travel to be with her for a special birthday outing.
