On Sunday, June 28, the Reverend Doug Lathrop will deliver his last sermon to the congregation and guests of the United Church of Kanab/ Fredonia. The Reverend Doug is “officially” retiring and he and his wife Jill will be moving to Denver, CO/ Yuma, AZ.

The Lathrop’s arrived in the west in the spring of 2005 for a vacation, took a side trip to Kanab, accepted a job and moved!  In the four years since, Reverend Doug has spearheaded the effort to build the new sanctuary. He will be remembered fondly for his immense help in fulfilling a dream of the United Church.

The community is invited to attend the Worship Service at 10:00 a.m., on June 28, and is also invited to attend a farewell luncheon for Doug and Jill following the service at 11:15 a.m.
