On Sunday, July 23, 2017, current and former members, friends and family gathered, filling the sanctuary, to show their love and appreciation to the Rev. Dr. Tom Geer in celebration of his 20th year serving as minister to the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Ash Grove. Before worship, the morning service focused on an expressive, yet humor-filled recognition of Tom’s dedicated pastorate both to the church and in the community. A picnic style lunch followed honoring Rev. Geer with the theme, “With Tom, Life is a Picnic! 20 years and counting…”
