I’ve always loved fall … I love the change in seasons and the reminder that God, our Creator, is a perfect God and His wonderful world is all within His  watch-care! While change is sometimes difficult, it allows us time to celebrate what was, and it allows us to envision WHAT’S NEXT!  

We announced in church on Sunday that Brandy Davis is resigning her position as Children’s Minister and her last day will be October 24th. (Her beautiful letter is attached.) Brandy has done such an amazing job loving our kids and teaching them, and MODELING for them the love of Christ … she has been creative in providing bridge events for children in our community to come and get to know us, and we have just started a NEW Club Journey at Lee Elementary under Brandy’s direction. 

I am so sad to see Brandy “retire” but I understand how working a fulltime job AND managing a family life is difficult. God blessed Brandy with this experience as she entered into ministry, and He will bless her as she transitions to a volunteer role in our church!

The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever . Psalm 121:8

LET US CONTINUE TO PRAY ABOUT “What’s Next” … let us pray that God is preparing the perfect person to come and lead our Children’s Ministry in the future!

VISION MEETINGS POSTPONED …  I love dreaming about God’s vision … His possibilities are endless and His plans are always MUCH bigger and better than anything I could ever come up with on my own!!
