His name isn’t one that’s recognized throughout the brotherhood. Actually, his name probably wouldn’t be recognized in all the congregations of the Lord’s church within the county. But the name Harold Adcock meant a lot to his home congregation.
In the past, Harold served his congregation as a Bible class teacher, and also as an elder. He enjoyed singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs and making melody in his heart to the Lord and he did so as a song leader for some 50 years.
Harold wasn’t raised attending the services of the churches of Christ, but he saw to it that his children got the opportunities that he did not. He was a realist, but an encourager at the same time. He loved to laugh. He loved children, and often mentioned them in his prayers, especially at the beginning of Sunday School. He loved God, he loved his family, he loved the truth and he loved the church.
Harold’s example will continue to live on in God’s kingdom at Keltonburg while he continues to live on with the King.
“So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:6-8)
