The other wonderful news to share with you is that the Rev. Sarah Akes-Cardwell is going to remain at St. John's. In her time here, which began in February, she has made a real difference in the life of our community. She will continue to be half-time, with a focus on children and families.
"I am grateful for this opportunity to continue being in ministry with St. John's. In particular, I am excited to walk alongside families and the youngest members of our community as we explore what it means to live as followers of Jesus. We'll do this through faith formation at church and in our daily lives in a way that is intentional, relevant, and grounded in Jesus' way of love.
"You all have been a blessing to me and my family over the past three months. I can't wait to see what the Spirit has in store for all of us."
We are blessed that Sarah, her wife, the Rev. Amanda Akes-Cardwell, and their son Samuel, will remain part of the St. John's community.
