A Message From Pastor Chad – June 17, 2022
What a gift it has been to enjoy the warm weather and to see the green start to take over. The gift of life is all around us and a reminder that even when the dead of winter was getting us down, this is all confirmation that life was still stirring! A gift from God indeed.
This week I was excited to meet with Jon Secaur and Rick Painley (our Board Chair and Vice Chair) to begin some initial brainstorming and planning around our endemic re-visioning. The ideas were flowing and we will be excited to share the plan with you when the time comes. Please keep your church leadership in your prayers as we discern how to move forward in this process. A top priority is keeping the congregation and informed so everyone can be a part of it. We have already looked at the hard work we did in 2019 and want to adapt it and build off it. We hope this time will be filled with prayer, energy, creativity, and care for our congregation and our community.
Pastor Chad Travel
As you know, this week begins a stretch of travel for my family and I. Vacation is this week from June 19-26. After that I will be going to North Dakota for a worship rally with Pacific Island DOC churches, Mission Trip to Dayton with CYF youth, and Chi-Rho Camp! Most Sundays I will be here but during the week I will be traveling. Thank you for your amazing support as I have the privilege, opportunity, and joy of participating in these events! I am honored and blessed to represent our congregation in these capacities.
If you have any pastoral care emergencies please contact your Elder, your Elder Co-chairs MaryEllen and Drema, or get in touch with our secretary Sandi Kossick who will be able to direct you to the right place.
