Thank You, Elder Bruce Arlett Sr.!!!

As the congregation prepares for the coming of a new pastor, it took time on Sunday, November 18 to thank Elder Bruce Arlett, Sr. for his worship leadership during the past eight months. The worship service was a time of praise and thanksgiving to God for His many blessings. In his sermon, Bruce reminded the congregation that we are called to be faithful, and we are called to be family - to reach out to another in love, to apologize and to forgive one another where there is need, to speak words of hope and kindness. Following the worship service, there was a luncheon to honor Bruce for his faithful witness. The church family enjoyed this time of good food, warm fellowship and the opportunity to personally greet and thank Bruce. We look forward, in faith, to the future as the Rev. Ruth Boling begins her ministry with and among us..... Clerk of Session: Ethelyn Fulton

Recently, we received some good news from our engineers regarding the Sanctuary. After extensive research and measurement, it has been determined that we will not have to disassemble and rebuild the east wall. The design of the new trusses will stabilize and tie in the entire structure. This will save us nearly half of the cost of restoration as well as a tremendous amount of time. The engineers and builders are completing final plans for construction. Assuming that all goes according to schedule, we might be back in the sanctuary by Christmas this year.
