Wait for it...

Dear Church Family,
Can you believe our "program year" has come to a close and our June All Parish Meeting is upon us?
What an incredible year it's been - from a return to in-person worship and church school, to our Outdoor Family Worship series, to our virtual Christmas Eve that stretched into a virtual January, to baptisms, a sabbatical, Easter festival worship, and more, we have been on quite the journey this year!
This Sunday, we welcome our UCC Area Conference Minister, Rev. Alex Shea Will to preach the word to us as we reflect on the year behind us and the opportunities ahead. Alex will be preaching on Habbakuk 2:2-3, and reflects, "I like the line 'If it seems to tarry, wait for it.' We tend to focus on the former verse – write the vision! – but the cycle is writing and waiting and writing and waiting, and maybe this is a season of the latter..."
You won't have long to wait, however, for the All-Parish Meeting, which will take place immediately after our worship service in the Sanctuary, and on Zoom (link will be in your weekly newsletter). We will vote on the slate that our Discernment & Engagement team has prepared for us, vote on Council's proposed budget, and hear a presentation from our Financial Planning Team. Holy Business will abound!
Join us in the Sanctuary and online at 11am this Sunday to worship, wait, and wonder together!
