From the Desk of Pastor Donald Magaw


July 4th, 2019

To all our church family: It is with a great deal of sadness and sorrow that I must inform you that “Big Mike” Savitsky passed away this past weekend after a long and courageous battle with a number of medical issues. For those who do not know Mike, let me give you a little background about this man: several years ago Mike came to me with an idea and a vision to help people in our community. He wanted permission to hold an AA meeting in our backroom every Friday night. Of course, I said yes.

One meeting turned into two and finally we now have meetings 5 days a week. Over the years, Mike also made sure the snow was plowed from around the church in the winter months and when his health totally failed, he made arrangements for someone else to do the job.

Mike was someone with a big heart and was always concerned with the well-being of the people he met. (He called me constantly to check on my own health.) He was very active in making sure the AA program ran properly and that they took care of our church building.

It is interesting to note, that when Sandy destroyed our church, it was many of the AA members who came running to help salvage and rebuild (many of them had major damage to their own homes). We at the church will be eternally grateful for all the help the members of AA have done in our restoration, and if it had not been for the vision of “Big Mike”, we never would have had the program in place to help families get their lives back on track.

At this time, we need to lift Mike’s family up in prayer that God will help them through this most difficult time. It is my understanding that there will be a memorial service for Mike in Keyport on Friday July 5. As soon as I get any more details, we will pass them on through our website.

God bless,

Pastor Don
