A Deacon Still at Work

“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!” you might overhear Bob McConahy say at Heritage Village, his assisted care living facility in Gainesville, Virginia. Bob has served as an OPC deacon, pianist, organist, and choir director, and he continues to look for ways to serve the Lord in retirement. The staff enters his room to see him poring over his study Bible, or praying and talking about the things of God. Recently, Bob invited our church, Acacia Reformed in Manassas, Virginia, to lead a devotional service on Sunday afternoon both to worship with and witness to the residents at Heritage Village. “Honor such men,” Paul says of Epaphroditus (Phil. 2:29) because of his faithful service to God and the church.
