Hello Orchards UMC!
What a joy it is to be at Orchards UMC!
Last Sunday, July 4th, was wonderful to worship with all of you on Zoom and in person. Thank you again to everyone who has stepped up to guest preach as our transition over the month of July takes place.
Thank you to Lorrie Schnabler for a wonderful sermon about how God's work can happen through us when we are ready to say yes. I look forward to hearing about Jay Kitchin's guest preaching on July 18th!
I plan on reaching out with phone calls over the next few weeks, so do not be too alarmed by my 541 area code. I promise I'm not a scam. And if you want to reach out to me, my cell number is (541) 543- 3671.
In case you were wondering, where is Pastor Jessie? Here's a rundown of the month of July, just to keep you in the loop:
July 1-11th: Thomas and I are house-sitting for my parents in Salem, OR, and commuting to Vancouver.
July 12-21st: We are going to Anchorage, AK, to spend time with family and completing the co-guardianship process for Thomas's twin brother, JD.
July 22nd -onward: We are in Vancouver! YAY!
Peace and Blessings to You,
