Pastor's Corner

Every month our pastor writes a short note to the congregation in the newsletter. We have pulled out some of the less time sensitive notes here that may be helpful in helping you to live out your Christian life and service in the church and in the world. This page contains articles by Rev. Eric Lane, Rev. Jay Bissett (2016-17), and Cindy Sears (during pastor transitional period).
