Other Notes and Info

I’m am lucky to be out of the office for a couple days this week attending a retreat for Christian educators. I’m hitting “send” on this email from my room at the retreat center. 🤪 For my “other info” this week, I thought I would share this picture of this morning’s beautiful sunrise over the mountains. I pray that you are finding some time to rest and just breathe in the midst of busy lives! Know that you are loved & cared for by your FPC family and by God!


Please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns!
