We cannot begin to express how blessed and warmly welcomed we have felt since accepting the call. Your generosity began before we even moved with contacts and messages welcoming us and offering prayers on our behalf. There was a tremendous amount of work done on the parsonage that helped make it home for us. Since arriving we have been welcomed with an installation service and reception, a tea for Shelley, and filling-the-food-pantry shower. We are grateful not only for your generosity, but for the time and effort put into all of these.
Many of you have reached out personally with a welcome gift or with food; some of you stopped by just checking on things; and a number of you have been helpful in answering our many questions. We are thankful for the help of the trustees with a number of needs at the parsonage since we arrived. To say that we are thankful is an understatement. We are truly humbled and blessed!
Above all we thank God who brought us here and we look forward to working and living among you to worship and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. In humble gratitude, Pastor, Shelley and Steven
Thank you to everyone last Sunday, and over the last two weeks, for welcoming me and my family. Thank you for the gifts of food and the reception following the installation. Most of all, thank you for the warmth and fellowship we share in Christ our Lord. We look forward to getting to know you all, our dear brothers and sisters in Christ. - Pastor, Shelley and family
