Illinois layman receives first Life Achievement Award
ROCKFORD, Ill.––Steve Nailor, president of the National Association of Conference Presidents of UM Men, presented Donald Moore, a member of Grace UMC, with the first Life Achievement Award.
The award replaces the previous Life Membership Award.
“We wanted to present the first Life Achievement Award to a man who illustrates daily his love for Christ and his fellow men,” said Steve.
Don gleans apples, mows the five-acre church lawn, helps with Society of St. Andrew potato drops, rings the Salvation Army bells at Christmas, and helps with church rummage sales.
“He provides quiet and unassuming support for all ages and programs at Grace UMC,” said the Rev. Pam Rossmiller, pastor of Grace UMC. “He is a loving husband, father and grandfather.”
