Reflections From the Pastor
Dear Friends in Christ,
Midsummer is upon us already! If you are anything like me, you’re probably scratching your head and wondering how it has flown by so quickly. In August, worship continues at 9:00 AM. We have special music lined up for many Sundays, Meet Me at the River (a program for children) each week, and an opportunity to greet your friends and neighbors during Coffee Hour. Please come join us!
Mark your calendars for our annual Pilgrimage Sunday at the Old Round Church on September 7 at 10:00 AM.
Summertime is a time of transformation at RCC. As your new pastor, I’ve been adjusting to the rhythms of full-time ministry, as I get to know faces, places and names. Together with church leadership, we’ve been asking – "How is God calling us to be the church in this time and place?" As we move into the fall, we will continue to ponder this question.
Our church building is also undergoing transformation. The Trustees coordinated the removal of the old oil tank from the front lawn as well as exterior painting. A storage room was cleaned out and is being transformed into a comfortable space for small groups to gather. Please extend a big THANK YOU to Peter Swaine, Cindy Preston and members of the Youth Group for painting the back room in the Christian Education wing a soothing shade of blue!
With all of these internal and external transformations happening at church, and in light of the many events on our global stage, it begs the question –How is God calling you to live out your faith in the world? How are you being transformed this summer?
It is my hope that church is a place where we can think and pray about these questions together. Please drop by during office hours, or contact me to schedule an appointment.
Blessings on your summer!
