Nov. 27, 2013 — The Rev. Carl Erwin and Alice Joy Brinegar Erwin are celebrating their 63rd anniversary.
They were high school sweethearts in Olive Hill and married on Oct. 14, 1950. They have been blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, and seven greatgrandchildren. (One daughter, two granddaughters and three greatgrandchildren live in Olathe.)
Carl (and Alice) pastored for 30 years, serving as senior pastor of Ohio churches. Alice was also the receptionist for Nazarene Publishing House in Kansas City, Mo., for 10 years.
Since retirement, Carl has kept busy with his “Other Sheep” ministry as he continues to reach out to those needing spiritual help. He also is a regular contributor of articles to the Johnson County Gazette, which reaches over 100,000 readers every two weeks.
The Rev. and Mrs. Erwin attend College Church of the Nazarene and are so thankful for the 63 years God has given them to serve Christ and His church.
