This Sunday is Pentecost, the day that is traditionally thought of as the birthday of the church! Make sure to wear RED on Sunday, the color of Pentecost. Gail has great music planned: a piano and organ duet that she composed, a guest flutist and even a little percussion. We will dedicate our stewardship pledges on Sunday, so please bring your pledge cards with you. It promises to be a great Sunday so I hope I'll see you here. 

I also want to let you know that Kendra Rains, our administrative assistant, is moving to Chicago at the end of June where her husband received a new job. She's only been with us a couple of months but has been a pleasure to work with. We are in the process of looking for a new administrative assistant, but until that happens please be patient if you call the church and have to leave a message. Kendra's hours will be different as she gives what time she can, and I'll be away June 12-June 24 on vacation and at Montreat, and then again June 30-July 15 at Spofford. In July, Gail will serve as the temporary admin until a permanent person is hired beginning in August. But her hours, too, will be different. So if you need something, please leave a message on the church voicemail, or email or text. And if you know someone who might be interested in the job, let me know. 

I hope to see you Sunday as we celebrate the church!
