Leander’s oldest church has closed.
The Leander Baptist Church has confirmed that Pastor Michael Leander passed away Thursday.
Leander was 89.
The church has no immediate information about his funeral plans.
In the days after his death, the church announced that Pastor Leander would serve as pastor at a special funeral for Pastor Eric Miller, who was in hospice care when Leander died.
Miller, who had recently left Leander as his pastor, will be buried in a private funeral service at his home in Leander.
The church also confirmed that the Rev. James Pugh will be performing a service at the funeral.
Pugh had been a regular visitor at the church since its inception in the late 1960s.
Leane was a longtime member of the church.
