Published 10:00 pm Thursday, June 19, 2014

On Sunday, May 18, at its 218th Anniversary Homecoming, the people of Green Creek First Baptist Church honored their former pastor, Rev. Jack Weaver, by installing him as Pastor Emeritus. Rev. Weaver preached in the morning worship service, and though hampered somewhat by advancing years, blessed those present with both the content of his message and with his vivid memories of the time he and his family shared the ministry of Green Creek First Baptist.
Rev. Weaver served Green Creek First Baptist as pastor from 1976 – 1984. Weaver is a graduate of Spartanburg High School, Furman University and Southeastern Baptist Theological. In 1950 he married the former Marieta (Rita) McCarly. Over the decades of his career Rev. Weaver served churches in both North and South Carolina. The Weavers now reside in retirement in Spartanburg, S.C.
At the installation service Rev. Weaver was presented with a commemorative certificate of appreciation and an afghan with a theme that interprets the history of Green Creek First Baptist Church since its founding in 1796. The church plans to exhibit a plaque in its conference room acknowledging the service of Rev. Weaver and his installation as Pastor Emeritus. Weaver is the church’s second Pastor Emeritus. Rev. J.L McCluney, who passed away a number of years ago, was honored with the title in 1986.
