year has been a challenge for the church and the congregation. In 2015 our pastor retired unexpectedly due
to a family illness and for about six months we had different pastors who
rotated into the church every week or two. However, this congregation is
resilient, cheerful, hospitable, community oriented, supportive, willing to
change and most of all willing to lead as well as follow. Our Lay Leaders stepped up to the challenges
and provide assistance to incoming rotational pastors as well as providing
wonderful, inspiring services during that time.
The congregation remained loyal to God and the church and supported
these Lay Leaders
All of the
various teams and committees worked to make sure we were meeting the needs of
the congregation. However, I would be
fibbing if I didn’t say that we were excited at the prospect of finally having our
very own Pastor again. Pastor Jonathan
Combs, came to us with love in his heart and an inspiring joy to be one of the
sheep that he leads. He has many
terrific ideas on how to make our church stronger. He will be starting a summer
Bible Study program in June and is working with the choir director to bring in
some new and perhaps different musical programs during the summer months.
looking forward to the new look of our church!!
