Evolving as a church
The Lord truly works in wonderful and mysterious ways. When I was approached by Pastor Mothershed over 10 years ago to take on the duties of the brunch ministry, I would have never guessed it would still be functioning after all this time. Allen asked me to agree to taking it on for one year and here we are….
We started off gradually and took on the assignment one week at a time. Before I knew it, a group of members joined the team and we have been at it ever since. The joys have far outweighed the challenges and I will remain grateful for the loyalty, dedication and support of those who comprised this Sunday fellowship team. We have had a very good run and it is our sincere hope that you will agree.
Life is filled with changes which includes children, grandchildren, marriage, retirement, vacations and the pursuit of other endeavors. That time in life has found its way to include our Sunday brunch fellowship group. Our last brunch under current conditions will take place on CE Celebration Sunday May 17th, 2020.
A wise person once said “when one door closes, two windows open.” I believe this to be true. All one needs to do is take a look at our church calendar to realize it is filled with many activities. There will be occasions throughout the year where we will continue to serve and celebrate; it just won’t be every Sunday. By closing this chapter in the church’s book might enable us the opportunity to consider other means of hospitality and community outreach.
It has been quite an adventure and our team would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve this congregation.
With the best and grateful regards,
Director of Fellowship
