Weekly Minute with Pastor Susan

Dear ones, This fight against Covid has gotten really personal for me. My brother, John Thisell, lost his life to complications of this disease on Sunday (the day before his 63rd birthday), after 4 weeks in ICU, three of which he was on a ventilator. He leaves behind his grieving widow, 2 beloved step-children and daughter in-law, our mother, my sister and me, 5 nieces and nephews, and a plethora of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who love and miss him.

A Note From the Church Office...

This has been a tough week for me. I don’t like the uncertainty, I don’t like not being able to see and be with the people I love, and I just want this “thing” to end.  I feel certain that many of you share these same sentiments.  What I do know is that a tiny act of kindness goes an extra long way these days. Both for the giver and for the receiver. So, if nothing else – give someone an ounce of kindness today. Tell those who are dear that you......
