Fellowship Hour is being hosted today by the Leider and Lekas families in loving memory.

 Welcome...Today we welcome Very Reverend Father Kwame Joseph Labi who is the Rector of the Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Cathedral in Accra, Ghana. We thank him for his presence, prayers and words this morning. He looks forward to meeting you during Fellowship Hour this morning.

 Father’s Day... Father's Day is an occasion to mark and celebrate the contribution that our father has made to our life. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers.

The celebration originated in West Virginia in 1908 and its popularity spread slowly. In 1972 president Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a national holiday.

The United States of America and most countries in Europe have set aside the third Sunday of June for this celebration honoring the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children's lives. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great-grandfathers and even other male relatives.

Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.
