A Message from Pastor Bruce

Pr. Bruce Wilder
Senior Pastor

Dear Friends in Christ,

I look forward to celebrating Pastor Carol Clark’s retirement (a year later!) with you on June 6 at 2:00PM.  We had to delay this event since last summer due to COVID health orders. Now we can thank Carol in person and celebrate this new season of life for her and her husband, David.  Please join us!

In just over six months I will be preaching my final sermon as your senior pastor.  It has been my honor to serve at Faith. I thank God we voted in favor of our succession plan three years ago. Our congregation made a wise and proactive decision to move forward in this manner. Pastor Watts has demonstrated his faithful leadership in many ways during this process. He will be a great senior pastor!

If you have been joining us for online worship this past year, then you can thank Jerry.  He was responsible for getting us up and running with our live broadcasts.  These online services will continue, but I encourage you to worship in person once again if you are not sick at home or out of town for long overdue vacations.

Finally, thanks for your faithful stewardship during these strange and challenging times. Without your financial support, our congregation would have been faced with many hard decisions and reductions in ministry.  Instead, we have been able to provide ongoing pastoral care and regular worship opportunities for everyone.  This summer we will be doing even more as we return to our full schedule of ministries and activities.

Your brother in Christ,

Bruce
