In honor of the memory of Orpah Christopher, her children and grandchildren, and her faith community The Church of the Good Shepherd, have established the Orpah Christopher Memorial Playground fund.
Orp loved her church family. She was one of COGS legendary members who joined in 1960. She served in almost every position in the Church during her 57 years of active and faithful membership. But she always spoke of her work with the children the most.
Orp loved the children in our Church, and for many years joined the kids in front of the Sanctuary to share her "God in a Paper Bag" Children's Sermon. She continued in later years as a special link between the elder members and the young, because she was always young at heart.
The memorial playground will be a new facility to serve the expanding ranks of younger members of the Church of the Good Shepherd family. We can't think of better way to honor her memory and years of service.
