➤ Reformation, from Page 6 “I see future mission work here,” smiles Hales. “We’ll be able to do some serious cooking in here when it is finished.” As Pastor Hales proudly shows off the new rooms and added spaces for the congregation he settles in the sanctuary which truly is that. While it can seat up to 200, it is a reflective area. Pull down screens are available and the room is enhanced with a good audio/visual system. The altar is elegant in its simplicity and functionality. The ambiance welcoming. Pastor Hales gets up and turns off the main lights. The light around the cross remains casting a soft glow. “I find that so beautiful,” muses Hales, “the way the light hits the cross...looks like an angel.” It will be 23 years in June when Pastor Brad Hales celebrates his ministry. For him, the call came early. “I knew at a very young age that this is what I would be doing.”

For him, he has found his best pastoral experience to be here in Culpeper. In addition to Pastor Hales, the church has a part-time secretary, part-time church administrator, part-time youth director and part-time musician. Growing pains are coming easy for Pastor Hales. “It’s a really beautiful and functional space,” said Hales, “so full of natural light.” “We’ve gone from roughly 8,000 square feet to 12,000 square feet,” said Hales, “and it is all testament to the power of Jesus Christ.” A ribbon cutting is scheduled for Friday, April 28, at 2 p.m. followed by a formal dedication Sunday, May 7, at 10 a.m. For information about Reformation Lutheran Church, call Pastor Brad at 540825-1376 or email PastorHales@hotmail. com
