Good afternoon everyone! Pastor Christopher started a sermon series on Salvation. Today's message was "Salvation Part I - Who?"
Today, we said farewell to our music director, Susan Redvanly. We thank her for her seven plus years of ministry and wish her and her family well in their futures. We held a luncheon to honor Mrs. Redvanly following worship, where Mrs. Kathy Alia, a member of the Adult Choir, presented a special gift on behalf of the entire choir. Pictured below is members of the choir with Mrs. Redvanly. More photos of the luncheon can be viewed HERE:
There will be no new episode of Christopher's Chat once again this week. Christopher's Chat will return on Sunday, August 27th.
