Pastor's Bookshelf - January 2017

Our goal with this blog is to give you an idea of the books that your pastors are reading. So even though the book we are going to highlight this month is not a new book to our bookshelf, it is one that we  have dusted off and brought back out recently.   

From Audrey's Desk - February 2017

February is one of the hardest months for those who struggle with any level of seasonal depression.  It is a little strange to me that the shortest month of the year is also one of the hardest. February is one of the hardest months for those who struggle with any level of seasonal depression.  It is a little strange to me that the shortest month of the year is also one of the hardest. 

From Tim's Desk - January 2017

I very much enjoy being a pastor.  It is an honor and a privilege to serve with you.  However, the worst part of pastoring is knowing when to cancel church due to inclement weather.  I say that only semi-sarcastically.  I truly do not like discerning in the early hours of the morning with Pastor Audrey, Leadership Team Chair, and Property & Finance Chair whether or not the roads are bad enough to cancel.
