Happy Birthday, Pastor Allan!!

On Friday – March 16th our Pastor Emeritus, the Reverend James Allan, celebrated his 102nd birthday!!

Pastor Allan came to the United Church of Christ, Congregational in Melbourne, FL (our former name/location) in January 1973,  accepting the call of full-time pastor, to our then struggling congregation.  During his tenure, he took our church through a process of healing and re-structuring.  He retired his position in 1977, and has remained an active member/influence of our congregation.

The past several years have taken a physical toll on Pastor Allan, thus limiting his active participation on a regular basis, but  he continues to be a guide/inspiration to our current pastor and membership.

The Riviera United Church of Christ wishes Pastor Allan a very Happy Birthday!
