A Big Thank You!
I want to pause for a moment to express a big thank you to everyone who stepped up to make last week’s services happen both online and onsite. We were truly blessed with a beautiful celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. That didn’t happen by accident.
I want to thank our staff team here at the church for going the extra mile to coordinate and plan for our first in-person services in over a year. In just a few weeks, they relaunched dozens of crucial ministries for this Easter, and did so from what felt like a standstill. That wasn’t easy. Your pastors, directors and staff stepped up to the challenge. I’m so proud of our team and grateful for their servant-leadership.
I also want to thank our many volunteers who stepped into the gap to help this past weekend. Our services require dozens of volunteers in many different capacities in order for things to run smoothly. Many of you stepped up, served and made it happen! A big thank you to you. We couldn’t have done it without you!
I also want to thank you the congregation for gathering safely. You were conscientious and careful. You maintained social distancing. You wore your masks, even when they bothered you. And you did it all with hearts of joy and kindness. Thank you for doing what it takes to gather in this season. You’re the best!
These are new days. Thanks for stepping up to help. We need each other more than we realize.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
