Pastor's Weekly Email
VBS has come and gone and my goodness what a great week!! We had 91 kids with over 40 adult and teenage volunteers helping to make this past week amazing. A huge thank you to Marie and all the team for creating opportunities for the children of this church and community experience the love of God! I was so impressed and honored to be a part of this week. The theme was "To Mars and Beyond" and each day the children had to build-up an element to help rescue the Mother ship and her crew. The elements were faith, boldness, kindness, thankfulness, and hope! A big thank you needs to go to Daryl and Kathy Soderman for designing the out of this world set! Many hours went into it and we are grateful. Another thank you to Rob and Amanda Baumann for making a huge robot for the kids to see and interact with. We are already looking at next years options for VBS!! A much-deserved rest is in order for all those who helped make this past week happen.
I need to share with you all that Dale Lee passed away last Friday (June 14th)! He fought bravely for a long time and now he is home with our Lord. Please pray for God to comfort Marcia and the family as they begin a new "normal". The service for Dale will be June 22nd at 11am with a reception to follow in Eden Hall. It will be catered by their favorite restaurant that they would go to most every Friday evening - Tequila Sunrise! We will miss Dale's leadership and love for this church!
I hope you all have a blessed week and I look forward to seeing you this Sunday in worship. Peace, Love, and Grace.
