Peg and I want to thank the church body for the gifts of the Notepads for Christmas. They were a total surprise and a blessing as we continue to try to keep somewhat current with modern technology. As a body, your kindness and thoughtfulness through this year has been such a blessing and always seemed to come at a time when it was the greatest encouragement to us. As we look forward to a new year, it is a joy to enter it with you! From a heart attack to a broken foot, paths we would not have chosen for ourselves, but paths God chose, you have been there. As we travelled those paths, you as a body travelled those paths with us with your help, thoughts and prayers. Thank you for caring for Peg and through this past year and for the gift of technology! --- Pastor
