From the desk of Pastor Ernie Green:

Missing in Action: A couple of weeks ago I was checking my schedule and realized that I had a whole week with no Doctor appointments. As I was finished with my radiation treatments, and not ready to begin the immunotherapy I looked at different cruise websites to see if there were any last-minute cruises available during the past week.  I found one that began and ended in New York City and sailed to the Bahamas for a week. The cruise line is one that we’ve never been on before, the MSC Line. We left last Sunday, and we are returning today. We needed a vacation, as you might imagine, especially after the past ten months we’ve experienced. I’ll see you all next Sunday and Monday.

Summer Bible Study:  Here’s another reminder that our Bible Classes during the summer months will be meeting on Wednesdays only at 11:00 AM in the Upper Education Building, Bible Study Room. Stop in on Wednesdays where we meet in an air-conditioned classroom.

Summer Hours:  Just a reminder that we began our summer schedule last week, which means that the office is closed on Fridays. If there is an emergency on a Friday, then please call me. For all other church business, please call the church office on Monday. Please don’t bother Carolyn at home.

Volunteer Award: In December, 2022, this congregation lost one of the greatest volunteers that we’ve ever been blessed with. That person was Todd Urban. There were not many days when Todd was not at church, building or repairing something.  Even after his cancer diagnosis, he was here working until he couldn’t stand any longer. In order to honor his memory and his legacy, we have initiated an award for those who serve with the same servant’s heart that Todd had. The award is called the Todd Urban Servant of Christ Award. The initial presentations will be made during our services on June 23 & 24. This is an award that will be presented annually. Many people are in line for the award this year and in subsequent years because of all that they do. We’ll get to all of them eventually. 

Stay cool, yet warm in the glow of the Lord.
Pastor Ernie Green
