Kathy Johnson Announces Her Retirement
On November 1, 1994, the Lord blessed our church when Kathy Johnson became our Administrator/Financial Secretary. Now, after 25 years of faithful service, Kathy has announced her retirement effective next spring. While she is stepping down from her position, we are thankful that she and Alan are not leaving our church or community.
The Trustees have established a search committee for our new Administrator/Financial Secretary, chaired by Mike Rooney. Those interested in applying for the position may contact Mike at email@example.com. The position is open and may be filled immediately, allowing for a period of overlap and orientation with Kathy before she leaves.
Service Ministry Team
We share communion and visit with our shut-ins. If you have a friend, relative, neighbor, or perhaps you yourself, who would like communion or would enjoy seeing a friendly face for a visit, we extend an invitation to contact us through Mike Gabby at 208-743-6645.
