Pastor Bruce Salmon Retires

On December 31, 2017, Pastor Bruce Salmon retired after serving as pastor of Village Baptist Church for 33 years. There is no good way to share the profound impact he and his wife Linda have had on Village.  Below are a few photos from the worship service and reception.  Pastor Salmon received citations from the Governor of Maryland, the Mayor of Bowie, and others.  Some of the youth who have grown up at Village sang their own version of  "We're Gonna Miss You When Your're Gone."  He and Linda presented a new banner with the theme "Beloved Community" to Village.  His summary sermon (podcast HERE) emphasized "God's Love Made Visible."
