Retired Pastor celebrates 90th Birthday by Serving Holy Communion.

Early in March, Rev. Don Rossman asked Tyler Memorial UMC Pastor Don Mundy if he could assist with Holy Communion on April 3. What Pastor Mundy didn’t know was that Rev. Rossman turned 90 on that Sunday.

He served his first Communion in 1953, some 63 years ago at North Buffalo United Brethren Church in Kittanning, Pennsylvania. He went on to serve Fairhaven-Sugar Valley Charge and Gettysburg-Pitsburg Charge, both in Pennsylvania. In 1975 he moved to Ohio and served at Bryan Faith (Defiance District), Tyler Memorial, Beaver Emmanuel and Concord-Mt Carmel Charges; all in the former Portsmouth District. He now lives in Chillicothe and is still a willing servant at 90 years old!
