Notes of Gratitude
Maddie, the twins, and I would like to thank you all for the Potluck, plant, and gift cards that the congregation gave us on our first Sunday. Hospitality is crucial to being the people of Christ, and we felt the love you showed to us. Thanks, and let's keep that welcoming spirit going as new people find their way to our church. We look forward to getting to know you all better in the coming months and years.

To the Saints of Shueyville
As you begin this new chapter in the life of SUMC, I want to thank you for your generosity, and wish you all the best as a congregation in fruitful ministry. I am as excited for Brody as the lead pastor in the midst of a faithful and beautiful people, as I am for
a determined congregation seeking to be nurtured by pastoral leadership toward Christlikeness in the community. You all have wonderful possibilities ahead of you, and I indeed wish you all the best. It has been a privilege to serve as your interim pastor.

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
