Pastor to mark 45 years


The Rev. Elwood Hipple, visitation pastor at First St. Paul's
Lutheran Church, will mark the 45th anniversary of his
ordination on July 21.

If you had asked the Rev. Elwood Hipple what he wanted to be when he grew up, he would have answered a teacher, a lawyer or a minister.

As a youth, Hipple was involved at his home church in Lancaster, Pa. He sang in the choir, participated in youth group and helped with vacation Bible school.

"I always came back to being a pastor," said Hipple, who will mark the 45th anniversary of his ordination Sunday.
