LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – After nearly eight years serving as pastor to the Upper Lake Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Lakeport Community Seventh-day Adventist Church, Pastor Randy Brehms will present his last sermon on Sabbath, Dec. 29, at the 10:50 a.m. worship time in the sanctuary of the Lakeport church.

The soon-to-retire Douglas Randolph “Randy” Brehms has been in the ministry for 40-plus years, covering a wide area of the U.S. including Tennessee, Texas, Indiana and throughout California.

He had pastored a number of churches, preaching at three on the same Sabbath, traveling hundreds of miles to attend each one.

In Lakeport and Upper Lake, Pastor Randy has brought a number of musical groups, evangelical programs, and nationally known speakers to the area.

He has been a supporting member of the Lake Ministerial Association by bringing understanding and cooperation among the various faiths in Lake County.

He was instrumental in bringing a warming shelter to the Lakeport community by hosting that shelter at the Lakeport Community SDA Church for the past three years, as well as being a driving force in opening the church in time of flood and fire disasters.

Pastor Randy along with his wife Karren – a home care Registered Nurse – plan to make Lake County their home after his retirement.

As noted at the recent retirement party, hosted by the Northern California Conference of the Seventh-day Adventists, “You can take the pastor out of the church, but you cannot take the love of ministering to others out of the pastor.”

So you will expect to see Randy Brehms around town, sharing his passion of the Christ’s love in the community.

Please join the Lakeport Community Seventh-day Adventist Church as they hear Pastor Randy Brehms’ final words as their pastor.

There will be a potluck following the service and the community is welcome to attend. If you wish to bring a prepared salad, a light dessert or a meatless entree, they welcome your thoughtfulness. A basket will be provided at the potluck to accept cards and/or monetary well wishes to Pastor Randy and Karren Brehms.
