The Forum Newsgroup wishes to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Pastor Werner Kordon of the Howard Beach Assembly of God, on his passing. Pastor Kordon first came to Howard Beach in 1953 and began the Full Gospel Assembly on 99th Street and 158th Avenue. He and his wife Mabel, faithfully served the community for more than 50 years before retiring to Florida where he passed away on Monday. As The Forum goes to press arrangements for prayer services and burial have not yet been confirmed. Please call the Howard Beach Assembly of God for more information at 718.641.6785 or check The Forum online for updates at theforumnewsgroup.com Please remember to pick up next week’s issue when we will feature an article about Pastor Kordon which will be written by his daughter Lois Griepp.
