Thank You and Change
had several ideas for what to write about today, but I got distracted and,
well, you know what happens when you get distracted! I would like to thank all the folks who
worked so hard to create such a meaningful Lenten season, Holy Week and
Easter. We had the communication team
which connected everyone to the various events, volunteers who did the egg
hunt, volunteers who showed up on a chilly Saturday to weed and mulch the
flower beds, mowers and trimmers, the front “bank” man, the lily grower
(really?), the Fellowship Committee who prepared breakfast on Easter, parents
who brought their children to the pastor’s class for baptism, not to mention
the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services, the Chancel Choir, Kirkringers,
Joyful Spirits Band and other musicians who provided so much beautiful music,
readers and leaders for the worship services, including the Bernauers who
provided a reflective service for Wednesday nights, the Worship Committee,
actors for Easter, and the staff: Ben, Rebecca, Mary Catherine, Paige, and
Deby. It was truly a cast of dozens!
Again, thank you one and all!
is the first week of the new system for delivering the weekly newsletter. If you have an email address that we don’t
have at the church, please call and we can add it to the eCaller mailing
list. It’s our hope to provide an
electronic copy of the newsletter to each person in a household who has access
to email, not just the head of the household.
This may take some getting used to (all change does!), but it is a good
stewardship decision as well as a more effective way to communicate with
everyone in the congregation. Many of
the articles from the Caller will be in the eCaller, but some of in house
notices will appear as links (like my Distractions!) When you click on a link in the eCaller, you
will be connected directly to the church’s website where more information is
available (including my Distractions!)
Give it a try every week for a few months and see how it works! Of course, we will continue to have a limited
supply of hard copies of the Caller available on Sunday mornings and those
without email access will receive a copy through the mail as always.
sure there was something else really important that I meant to write about as
well, but it will have to wait until I remember what it was. Maybe next time!
