Skip Arnold and the Klassens

Track Chaplain – Skip Arnold has been the track chaplain at Top End Dragways, providing Sunday morning worship services for the past 13 years. Skip is retiring and passing the torch on to Shawn Klassen.  Shawn is also part of the Racers for Christ team. Shawn’s wife Wendy and daughter Skylar will continue to share their musical gift. Thankfully Skip isn’t leaving and will still be filling in when Shawn isn’t available to travel here from Canada. This weekend Skip will be giving the message in honor of the Howard Kalm Memorial Race. Hope you can join us on Sunday morning at 8am at the picnic shelter, and that you’ll continue to support Shawn going forward. We are grateful for Skip’s dedication and we’d like to thank him for his 13 years of service!
