Pastor Terry W. Norman & Old Pilgrim M.B. Church offers our deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. John (Alt) Campbell. Alt was a tremendous asset to the music ministry at Old Pilgrim, you could always find him smiling and picking his guitar. There was not a time that we called on Alt and he was not there. Thank you, Alt for being a part of the music ministry and allowing God to be glorified through your guitar. You will be missed.

My condolences to the family. The death of a loved one is the most devastating experience a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable, but know that there are those who care, and more importantly, God cares. Psalm 34:18 tells us that God "is close to the brokenhearted." He "is the God of all comfort". (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

Psalms 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork”.
Music was an important part of the worship service at the temple. Certain groups of the Levitical tribes were designated as temple musicians and singers, offering their praises to God
We salute you Mr. Campbell for the love of the guitar that was your voice. The Levites were all skilled with musical instruments. We believed that you possessed that same skill.
Rest on our Friend, We Will Miss you!
