It was a real joy to have Ashley with us for her first Sunday as our Iona Ministry Intern. We look forward to having her with us through May (maybe June?), starting with her preaching this Sunday, September 24th. We have already experienced her enthusiasm and lively spirit and know that there's more to come!
Renovations Updates: We will soon be receiving insurance funds for the cleaning of the ductwork in the Nave. It was determined that the char we’ve been seeing for months is related to the lightning strike. The cleaning of the ducts will be conducted once the restoration work has been completed. We are so thankful for the additional funds from the insurance company, as this is an expensive but necessary part of our renovations. Thanks be to God!
DC Restoration is waiting on a part to start cleaning the ductwork in the Parish Hall (mostly likely next week). The microwave for the Parish Hall has arrived at Lowe’s. It will be installed next week. Countertops were installed on Thursday, September 20th! They are awesome!
