A NOTE FROM PASTOR KEVIN

MAY 2022

Is it spring yet? Please? I am in need of some warmth in my bones - NOW! I am also in need of some renewal - some signs of life in God's creation as a reminder that God is constantly renewing you and renewing me. This winter has been hard, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We look forward to some away time and some vacation time.

Please remember to continue your amazing support for your congregation as we move through the summer. Inflation and gas prices influence your ability to support your church, and some will be hit harder than others. So if you are struggling to offer support to your church right now, don't worry.

God love you. God loves you. Your church friends love you.

If you are blessed with "enough" right now, please consider additional support for your church to help those who are struggling. St. John's and St. Mark's have journeyed through feast and famine, joys and struggles, and everything in between. We will continue to serve our communities with vibrancy and hope because we know that we are BLESSED and we will continue to share those blessings as best we can.

I think I see some flowers now...

Blessings,

Pastor Kevin
