From the Pastor
We are excited to remove the “interim” title from Rhys’ name! The church voted to call Rhys Everspaugh as our permanent, full-time Minister of Youth and Education with a 99.5% vote. If you did not have an opportunity to do so Sunday, please take time to congratulate Rhys and let him know that you are praying for him. Also, I want to thank our Search Committee, who has been diligent in their work for many months as they sought God’s will for our church. Committee members were Barry Harper (chm), Kim Hart, Kyle Drennan, Lisa Howie, Damon Wilson, Vicki Dickerson, Shane Nicholson, and Tina Westbrook.

We have a calendar-packed, exciting month of October before us. Please make note of all these events and activities:
