Foundation of Fathers, Part 2

Foundation of Fathers, Part 2

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day.  In our worship we will celebrate and pray for all the men in our church for the ways they are committed to our God and teach us through their example.

During this 130th anniversary year, we remember some of the men that have laid foundations of ministry at Hood Memorial Christian Church and have demonstrated a life devoted to Christ.

Today we here from Karen Tart Krueger about her father, “Tittle” Tart.

Daddy loved this church.  William S. “Tittle” Tart was born in 1925 and Hood Memorial was part of his life from the very beginning.  His grandmother, Civil Eldridge Thornton, was a charter member of Hood Memorial and I’m sure that helped make the church even more special to him.  He never really talked about what the church meant to him, but you could tell by his actions and dedication to the church just how important the church was to him. 

The church was a place of comfort to Daddy and he was always there to help the church any way he could.  He may have been a deacon, chairman of a committee, cook in the kitchen, handyman, or greeting people on Sunday morning and handing out bulletins.  Whatever needed to be done, he was proud to help.  After Daddy died, we found a drawer full of neatly folded bulletins, years worth, with a number written in the top corner of each one.  He always counted the number of people who attended church each Sunday.  I remember that we used to drive two cars on Sunday morning because Daddy would leave home early to unlock the church doors, turn on the lights, and check the air/heat. He stayed after church to check the air/heat again, turn off the lights, and lock the doors. 

In the last year of Daddy’s life, I would hear from various people that Daddy’s car was at the church at odd times, doors locked and no one there.  He found peace and comfort at the church, it was like home. 

Daddy loved this church.
