Rev. Gael Thompson,
Pastor for Family Life Ministry
 Last Spring, we processed a new book, GROWING YOUNG: SIX ESSENTIAL STRATEGIES TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE DISCOVER AND LOVE YOUR CHURCH. Some read the book and others attended an eight-week Sunday morning study of the book.
 
One of the six strategies is
“Prioritize Young People [and Families] Everywhere.” 
 
To help us focus on this strategy and be more intentional about implementing it, Gael’s title is changing from Minister of Education to Pastor of Family Life Ministry. This is a common title transition for many churches that want to grow younger and a great way to respond to the new young families we touched with our
very successful VBS this summer.
 
NEW Church DIRECTORY is being planned.
The collecting of updated information and photos for a 2020
Church Directory will begin in the next few weeks.
Watch for an information & photo kiosk in the foyer beginning
September 15. OR if you have information that needs to be updated please give it to Leta in the office - via email or just write it on the Welcome card and mark NEW info. Kerry Rash will be managing
the updates to the data base.
