Amazing Grace – How Sweet the Sound…

Chapter President/Chaplain Matt Hardman was officially ordained as a Minister of Christ as recognized by the State of Ohio on Saturday, June 27th, at the Grace United Methodist Church in Jackson, Ohio.

Officiating the ceremony was Ohio Society SAR Chaplain Dr. Ed Bonniwell, also the Senior Pastor at Hillside Bible Church in Cincinnati.  Ed drove up for the occasion with his church pianist Carmen Hood.  Matt’s wife, Sharon, sang a solo “Take My Life and Let It Be.” Several Hocking Valley Chapter members took part in the procession and ceremony, including Tom Moe, Bob Hill, Mark Hardman, Noah Hardman, and Jeffrey Hardman.  Chaplain Ed Bonniwell’s Ordination Admonitions were heartfelt and eloquent, keeping everyone’s attention with his booming voice.  Matt will also assist Ed as an Associate Chaplain of the Ohio Society SAR.
