Beloved in Christ, thank you for the wonderful send-off you gave me at Sunday's service, for the cards and gifts, and for the hugs and tears. As we part ways, I offer you my prayers for healing and hope.
 I will carry you in my heart forever.

Blessing and love, Pastor Rachel

INFORMATIONAL MEETING
Sunday, July 14th  
Dear Friends,
We will be holding an informational gathering on Sunday, July 14th, after morning service in the Main Hall.
This will allow us time to have multiple Boards and Committees bring the group up to date as to where we are within our present journey together.
In this time of discernment, we want to be sure we are all given ample time for questions and concerns.
If you are not able to make the meeting and/or have specific questions you would like addressed at the meeting, please contact Marcia Merritt (Co-Chair Deacons) pesinger37@aol.com or myself jim.welsh.jr@gmail.com prior.
 
Thank you ALL for your continued dedication to God's House.
