On May 24th, the Gilberton UMC decided to do something in memory of Pastor Joe Murton. The Church voted to put a flagpole up in front of the Church and dedicate it in his memory.
Gilberton UMC was the first church Pastor Joe was appointed to and served there for 8 years before being move to the Pottsville area last July. Pastor Joe was a great influence to the Church and touched many hearts.
On June 28th, the flagpole was dedicate in his memory and his family had the honor of raising the first flag on it. Pastor Joe may not be with us but we know he is in spirit. God Bless.
Pastor Jack Murray
