The Pastor’s Pen

This past Sunday was Lay Sunday, and it was such a joy to be able to worship and watch our laity in action. David Chapin and Angie Yerby did masterfully in their preaching, and Cheri Hobson and Steve Shirley did a wonderful job as liturgists. A special thanks is also due to Sabrina Hall for leading the children’s sermon as well as our choir and musicians at all three services!

If you were in the sanctuary for worship on All Saints Sunday a few weeks ago, you may have noticed that the acolytes were wearing white robes. Thank you to Buzz and Denise Brown for their generous donation of a complete set of these robes. They will really make Sundays like All Saints extra special. Thank you!

We have talented, dedicated, and generous members in our church, and that is the precise reason our congregation is healthy, vibrant, and growing. Thank you for your faithfulness and all the many ways you love and serve your church. It is a true joy and honor to be your pastor.


P.S. Jill, Thomas, and I would like to say thank you for our Pastor Appreciation gift cards. What a thoughtful way to commemorate Pastor Appreciation Month! Thank you!
