We all have different talents and God-given gifts.

Pastor April Sabbatical
Pastor April's sabbatical time will include a balance of activities and quiet time for rest and reflection. Most of her time will be comprised of resting, reading, writing, reflecting, exercising, baking, and meeting with a spiritual director. During February she spent four days in Florida for respite and renewal with her female clergy friends. In March she went to Napa California to run the Napa half-marathon, she learned how wine is made, and nourished her body, mind, and spirit while she savored the scenery. She will be returning from part 1 of her sabbatical at the end of March. Her return will include the March 26th worship service as she serves as liturgist. She will be in the office and back to her usual schedule beginning Monday, March 27th! Part 2 of her sabbatical is this fall. More to come on this...stay tuned!
