It has been a breath of fresh air (pun intended) to be able to gather without masks and sing together in worship. I look forward to our continuing march back toward our new normal, but I wanted to let you know I will be taking a break. I will be on vacation through June 30 and then I have an out-of-town meeting of the members of the Texas Impact board as we prepare to protect the rights of voters in the state of Texas. I will look forward to seeing you in worship the following Sunday.
In my absence, our ministry to the community will continue to hum along. If you would like to volunteer with Project Transformation you can reach out to Melanie Willhite or use this link:
However, if you have interest in being an in-person or virtual reading buddy, it may expedite things if you use this Project Transformation link:
Also, we still need volunteers for Sack Summer Hunger, especially from June 26 through the end of July. To volunteer, reach out to Meredith Freeman or use this link:
Finally, please mark your calendars for Saturday, July 24 from 9 am to 1 pm. Everyone is invited to attend the Single Board Model Workshop hosted by George Fisk. This workshop will provide information and training for us to consider a simplified structure to handle the business of the church.
I look forward to joining with you again following my time away. God be with you until we meet again.
Grace and peace,
Rev. J.D. Allen
