AUGUST 2020 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MEYER’S DESK: If there is one thing we have all learned over the past few months thanks to the Coronavirus it is that life does not always go according to plan.  I’ve certainly learned that.  As most of you know, I made it known a few years ago that I would be retiring…

JANUARY 2020 NEWSLETTER

FROM PASTOR MIKE’S DESK:          Before I usually print any newsletter article, whether it be here or in the High School or Junior High Newsletters, I have Jessica check them over.  The main reason is because English was never my strong subject in high school.  She also has a way with words and saying things…

DECEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK:  The year was 1995.  It was Thanksgiving Day and our family had gathered with Marilyn’s side of the family for the usual feast at her parents’ home in Campbell Hill.  This year, however, was different than any other, for somebody very important was missing.  It was Marilyn’s dad, Henry, who had…
