|Thank you from Pastor Nancy!|
Thank you all for a wonderful pastors appreciation Sunday. I was overwhelmed by the generosity and the fun with which everyone greeted me with lovely little gifts and cards and from a troll with a Bee hat on that we’re calling Mr. B at our house and cards with butterflies on them – you all know how much I love butterflies! And a journal for helping me keep some mindfulness time and a lovely gift certificate for some self pampering time, a beautiful cyclamen plant, and beautiful cards with words that moved me to tears. And thank you for your other generous gifts which I will use thoughtfully. Thank you all for your support over these last 18 months – it has been a crazy and challenging journey and we pray that we will continue to go through this together in good fashion and come out on the other side with a new way of dealing with life and Church. Thank you also to the kids and for the presentation and to David for his kind words as we were waiting for the kids. It was wonderful! Also a shout out to David for the beautiful cake! Our Halloween party was big fun – thank you to the Faith Formation team for planning and setting up and cleaning up after. You are all a blessing to me! With love, Pastor Nancy

|Grace Street Ministry|
Calling all gloves!!!!!! you all have been unbelievably generous this fall as always. Now I am hoping that we can become the ‘glove church’. We are in desperate need of warm gloves for men and women – both knitted and other. I have found some at Job Lots that are not too expensive in the past. Maybe you have another source. Thank you in advance – I would love to be able to share with both Pastor Jeff and Pastor Karen. Thank you, Pastor Nancy
