I pray this letter finds you and yours all well. It has been a very busy summer at the church, and fall is shaping up to be busy, too. This Sunday we will be celebrating “Homecoming Sunday.” Homecoming Sunday is the official invitation to return to the church after being away whether you have been away because of vacations, work or just have not had the time to come to church. You are invited because no matter who you are or where you are in life, you are always welcome at church. This Sunday is also the official start of Sunday School for both the children and adults. There will be many activities going on Sunday before and during worship. We look forward to seeing you there.
In other news, work on the Parish House continues. Soon it will be ready for paint and then for my family to move in. We are so very excited and grateful to all of you for your hard work and donations that have made this possible. Living in the Parish House will enable me to be more active downtown and get a chance to know the people in our immediate area. In continuing to get to know the people in our area, I will be spending one day a week, either Monday afternoon or Monday morning, at local establishments meeting and chatting with whomever wishes to talk or have prayers.
Finally, I am happy to announce that I am working as an Adjunct Professor at Edison State Community College teaching World Religions. This puts me out of the office Tuesday and Thursday mornings but as always, I am reachable by my cell phone or church phone should an emergency arise.
May the Lord’s Peace be with you now and always,
