a new thing

Off to Kansas City

a new thingAn abbreviated Midweek Message this week as I am heading off to Kansas City to represent us at the first biennial Mission Summit of the ABC-USA.  I am going one day early to attend the pre-biennial theology conference and I will be staying for a couple of days after to attend the board meeting of the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists.  We are grateful that Naomi Schulz, one of our seminary interns for the coming year is able to fill in for Pastor Tripp while he is teaching at Virginia Theological Seminary for three weeks.  Naomi will be available for pastoral emergencies while I’m gone.  Wally Bryen will be preaching this Sunday and Naomi is working with him and Jan on the service.  The Cudworths will be doing coffee hour in celebration of their anniversary before they head off to Hawaii for vacation.  Please support all them in any way you can.

Big thank yous to Jan and the choir for all their hard work and beautiful music.  Also, kudos to everyone who helped make our first cook-out of the season a rousing good time

Come this Sunday at 10 AM and bring someone along to share the morning with you.

May God’s new thing flourish within us and among us.

Pastor Rick
