Time Event
To friends near and far
This is the letter we sent out to our Christmas card list. So, for everybody else, here is what's happening to us in just seven more weeks. Please note the invitation in the last paragraph.


Greetings from the Collins household! No, it’s not Christmas; that’s not why we’re sending you this out-of-season letter.

This letter is to announce that Arthur is retiring, effective June 30, 2017, after forty-one years of ministry. Our new address, effective June 1, 2017, will be:
3721 W. Tapp Rd.
Bloomington, IN 47403
Our cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses will remain the same. We will not have a land-line phone.

For the next two or three years, at least, Deanne plans on continuing in her job as a counselor for Hamilton Center in Spencer and Greencastle. Arthur’s main job will be to build our retirement house out at Wilderstead, in Ohio County (for which your prayers are greatly coveted).

In the meantime, there are many things still to be done here, including Arthur’s last high adventure trip with Venturing Crew 119. They are headed for Kandersteg, Switzerland, from June 11-20. Between now and then there is much packing to do, and a fair amount of down-sizing to be attempted.

Arthur’s last Sunday at Ellettsville First United Methodist Church will be June 25. The service starts at 9:30 a.m., and his sermon title is “The Last Word.” If you or anyone you know who has been touched by our ministry through the years would like to be present for that service, it would be wonderful. If you would like to send greetings and reminiscences, please send them to Arthur at the church, PO Box 548, Ellettsville, IN 47429, before June 23.
