Pray for These Churches in Pastoral Transition

(1) College Park, Maryland
(2) Cumberland, MD Bethel

(3) Hagerstown, MD

(4) Mt. Airy, MD New Beginning









Following a brief illness and hospitalization, Pastor David F. Dayhoff slipped peacefully into the arms of the One whom he served faithfully over the years on Tuesday, August 8th.


Pastor Dayhoff has the distinction of being the longest tenured pastor in one church in the denomination. For nearly 62 years he served the Cumberland Bethel congregation.


If possibleI want to encourage you as a member of the clergy on the Mid-Atlantic District to attend Pastor Dayhoff's Service of Celebration. It would be a fitting tribute to him and the longevity of his ministry for you to attend and be a part of remembering and honoring Pastor Dayhoff's faithful ministry.


Friends will be received at the Scarpelli Funeral home located at 108 Virginia Avenue in Cumberland, Maryland on Sunday, August 13 from 2-5pm.


A Funeral Service will be conducted at the Bethel Church of the Nazarene located at 11720 Valley Road NE in Cumberland, MD on Monday, August 14th at 12pm. Friends will be received at the church one hour prior to the service.


Interment will be in Restlawn Memorial Gardens.


Again, I want to encourage you to attend this service as we give God thanks for His faithfulness through Pastor Dayhoff's ministry.


Please keep the Dayhoff family and the Cumberland Bethel Church in your prayers.


Grace and Peace!

Dr. David W. Bowser
