From the Pastor

The Elders are meeting Sunday to discuss in-person worship possibilities and plans.  I will write you Sunday afternoon about their decision.

I will be on vacation next week.  I’m going to write my first academic paper in 10 years and celebrate the 10-year anniversary of my ordination to the vocation of Christian ministry.  Please pray that I am able to rest and enjoy some time in the sun.

If you need prayer, have an emergency or have some other need, please contact Steve Rehfuss, Elder chair, an Elder or Pastor Sheri Jackson.
