We said goodbye to Cassandra just a just few short months ago. Now we are saying another difficult farewell to Reverend Helen Rose Moore. Her last worship service with us was this past Sunday, 8/16/2020 – you can find her lovely and very heart-felt message to our congregation here. Reverend Jim Gill will be serving as our Interim Pastor beginning 8/30/2020.
In a sense, all our pastors are interim pastors. They inherit a pulpit from a predecessor and eventually hand it on to someone else. This is normal, but not easy. Our pastors are links in a chain stretching back 2,000 years into the past - and, God willing, extending equally far into the distant future.
Thank you, Helen Rose, for being “a link in our chain”!
