On Sunday, October 26th Chapel Hill UMC of Rome will uniquely celebrate Rev. Ken Kulp’s 80th birthday by watching him sky dive alongside the church's senior pastor Rev. Rich Griffith.
Kulp, who retired in 1998, accepted the call to return to his last appointed congregation as a co-pastor with Griffith this June. He has enjoyed working with his fellow pastor so much that he asked him join him in completing this bucket list item.
As they collect courage for the big event, taking place at 3p.m. at The Farm (1195 Grady Rd.) in Rockmart, Georgia, they are also collecting sponsors to donate to Murphy-Harpst Children’s Home.
“I wanted to do more than just jump out of a plane,” Kulp says, whose birthday is October 29.
In addition to being located in his wife’s hometown of Cedartown, Kulp also cherishes the organization for their “wonderful way of reaching children who have been abused and neglected”.
All are welcome to attend and donate to the big event this Sunday in Rockmart, complete with food and fellowship. Photos and videos will be posted shortly afterwards.
