"A life of dedication to faith, community, and service."
In recognition of a life marked by dedication to faith, community, and service, New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church is excited to announce the upcoming ordination of Claude Anderson as a Deacon. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at 4:00 p.m.
Claude Anderson's journey is one defined by his unwavering commitment to both his faith and his community. At the age of 22, Claude enlisted in the Army, serving for three years and achieving the rank of Staff Sergeant E6. His service took him across the globe with tours in Vietnam and Germany, where he demonstrated remarkable leadership and dedication.
Upon completing his military service, Claude entered the civilian world, where his contributions continued to shine. He joined the Ethan Allen Corporation and soon rose to the role of Warehouse Manager, where his strong work ethic and leadership skills left an indelible mark.
After retiring from Ethan Allen, Claude's commitment to service remained unwavering. He became a reserve police officer for the Town of Williamston, dedicating an impressive 10 years to ensuring the safety and well-being of his community.
Within the walls of New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church, Claude's impact is deeply felt. He currently serves as a Trustee, Sunday School Teacher, and a vital member of the Male Choir, Gospel Choir, and Adult Sanctuary Choir. His dedication to music and teaching is a testament to his love for both his faith and his church community.
As we prepare to celebrate Claude's ordination as a Deacon, we recognize the immense contributions he has made throughout his life's journey. His experiences in the military, his dedicated service in the civilian and law enforcement sectors, and his ongoing commitment to his church community all exemplify his unwavering dedication to the values he holds dear.
The ordination ceremony on August 20 will be a culmination of Claude's spiritual journey and a testament to his remarkable contributions to faith, community, and service. We invite the community to join us in celebrating Claude Anderson's ordination and to honor a life dedicated to making a positive difference.
