From Tim's Desk - May 2017

Our next Congregational Business Meeting will be on May 7. As has become our custom at the May Business Meeting, Pastor Audrey and I will announcement the ministry theme for our fourth year of ministry at HCOB which begins on June 1. For this past year, we’ve been focusing our efforts on Hospitality. So before we say our goodbyes to hospitality, I want to highlight some of what we’ve learned.

The transition from March to April brings with it the hope of spring. It has always made perfect sense to me that it is during this seasonal change that we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. A season that is abounding with images of re-creation and new life is the perfect time to remember the resurrection of Jesus and the new life he offers to each of us.  Holy Week is a special time in the life of the Church, carrying us from Palm Sunday to Easter morning.

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. 

From Tim's Desk - November 2016

November- a month of turkey and cranberries, a month of families gathering and unity events at church, a most wonderful time of the year. That is except for the 2nd Tuesday of the month.  I write that sarcastically, but I have been fascinated by the amount of members  mentioning to me how much they are not looking forward to election day and commenting that they wish it were just over.
