Have you ever been in a hurry to get somewhere, and then suddenly you hear those dreaded sounds, sirens behind you as you were driving a tad bit too fast in your haste? Maybe you’ve looked all over your house, but you just can’t find your car keys, or you left your phone in a...

From Pastor Kristina – February 2021

When I was younger, my dad and I would garden together. It was something we liked to do. Each parsonage we had, we created a big garden in the backyard, where we’d grow watermelon, sweet corn, tomatoes, lettuce, and so much more. We enjoyed gardening together, but it didn’t mean...

From Our New Associate Pastor, Rev. Kristina Roth-Klinck

It seems like just yesterday that I wrote in the newsletter for August about the windstorm back in July when a tree limb fell down! Well, here we are again, with much bigger tree limbs and a much bigger windstorm! I know for many of us, we experienced great damage to our homes,...
