May 2, 1992, was an important date for Celebrate! Family Church of Leicester, NY. That was the day a young couple, full of love for God, and with their bags packed for the mission field, decided to serve a small church in Mt. Morris , NY.
Recently, their church family surprised them with a service dedicated and devoted to them.
There were skits devoted to them by the Youth Group, a video presentation from many of the members of the church expressing their thanks to the Pastor and his family. There were songs and even the Top 10 Reasons We Love Pastor Eric and Deby expressed in the service.
A very touching and heartwarming tribute was given by Pastor Matt Drew, Associate Pastor for Celebrate! Family Church. He spoke of the integrity of Pastor Eric Scott. An excerpt is following : According to Pastor Matt, who has been walking alongside Pastor Eric Scott for about a dozen years. “ When you are with someone for close to a dozen years, you know someone pretty well, and I would have a sense if the Pastor had a breach of integrity in his life, I can tell you and look you right in the eye and tell you I know of no breach of integrity in Pastor Eric’s life. A good definition of integrity is if you slice something, it is the same on the inside as the outside. If you cut a piece of beautiful fruit and the inside is rotten, you say it has no integrity. If you cut Pastor Eric open, what you see is what you get. He has kept himself upright.”
