Position of Office Administrator Is Open
Rylie Anderson, our church office administrator, has tendered her resignation. Rylie has been working part-time in her dad's business, and will now become the office manager in his expanding business. With this increased responsibility, Rylie has decided that time does not allow her to continue as office administrator. We are very sorry to lose Rylie, but we are pleased to know she will remain a church member and that she plans to stay involved in various church activities. Rylie's last day will be June 31.

"God, we have pushed so many of our children into the tumultuous sea of life in leaky boats without survival gear. Forgive us and help them to forgive us. Help us now to give all our children the anchor of faith, the rudder of hope, the sails of health care and education, and the paddles of family and community to keep them afloat when life’s sea gets rough. Amen."

Pastor Robin: God blesses us with abundance and even promises to be with us even in times of hardship and fear. God asks only that we return all of who we are and some of what we have to share. Pastor Robin encourages us to continue with our generous giving to the mission and ministry of this church.
