This Sunday, July 8th, after both services in the Cafe, we invite you to the opening reception for the TRANSITIONS art exhibit honoring the Palandros and their 34 years of leadership at our church. There will be a scrapbook with note cards for you to write a note of encouragement, memory or experience you have appreciated about Michael and Donna.

The following week, July 15th, is our first Sunday with our new lead pastor, Josh Harder. On this Sunday, in both services, our church will bless Josh and his family as they enter this new chapter in their lives. We will also pray for Michael and Donna as they transition to new positions.
See you Sunday...

New Art Exhibit Opening "Transitions" and  
Reception Honoring Michael and Donna Palandro
July 8, 2018 in the Cafe
The artists have been working for some time on a new exhibit giving expression to the transitions in our life. We are excited about the entries that have been received! The theme of "TRANSITIONS" is also a reflection of the changes within our church the last few months. These transitions will continue as Michael Palandro leaves of his role as Senior Pastor and Josh Harder moves into his new role as our Lead Pastor.

We want to honor Michael and Donna Palandro for their 34 years of service! So we invite you to join us for the opening of "TRANSITIONS" and reception for the Palandros on Sunday, July 8, 2018 between services and after 2nd service. Please bring a picture of yourself for their scrapbook. We'll have a table set up for you to write a note with special memories, along with words of encouragement and appreciation.
