Pastor’s Message: Hope for New Beginnings


Happy Spring! Daffodils have bloomed, the world is greening up and the rhododendrons by the church were especially beautiful this year! I’m anxious to plant a small garden and flower beds. Spring is a time of anticipating, watching things grow, waiting for flowers to share their colorful splendor or maybe carefully checking for that first […]

Pastor’s Message: One Moment at a Time
