Pastor's Wednesday Message

I'm on vacation this week so I won't see you next Sunday, November 27.  Pastor Chuck Hunt will be preaching and leading worship instead.  People I trust tell me he's a good preacher; he says he's a story teller.  So please listen to his stories and let me know if you like them.

If you have an urgent need for pastoral care this week, please contact me.  I'm staying at home so will be available if needed.  You can email me at my usual address, or call me at the numbers listed in the bulletin.  Home number is usually best.

May you and your loved ones have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day celebration!
