A reception honoring the Rev. D. Randall Cone, of Louisiana, on 50 years of ordained ministry in the Presbyterian Church USA, will be held Saturday, Sept. 28 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Curryville Presbyterian Church, 201 East Main.

He retired officially Dec. 31, 2006 after serving several churches in Montgomery, Lincoln, Audrain, Lafayette, Johnson, and Pike counties.
A short program, beginning at 2 p.m., will be held in the church sanctuary under the direction of the Rev. Michael Lewton, Stated Supply pastor of the church.
Any gifts given will be designated 75 percent to the Missouri Union Presbytery Camp Covenant Point at Holts Summit.
