Letter from Rev. Dr. Christine Johnson – April 22, 2021

Dear friends, 
Next Wednesday, the moving trucks are coming to the home of Sue and Mike Grohn.  They are off on a new adventure and will be living near their daughter Zoe and family.  
I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to Sue and Mike for all their work around the church.  Normally, we’d have done a proper send-off, but with the restrictions currently in place, it’s not to be.  Most recently, Mike has been our Envelope Secretary and in the past he served as treasurer of the pastoral charge.  Susie has been active in the UCW and the Monday Stitchers.  We’ll miss her sense of mischievousness and fun.  
Sue and Mike, may God’s love and grace go with you as you enjoy this new phase in your life.  We hope that you’ll be back to visit us when we can all be together in person.
Here’s an announcement from Nancy Hayley —
Our West Ottawa Ladies Chorus is putting on a virtual Spring Concert this Friday, April 23 at 7:30 pm.  We have all worked very hard, learned many new “techie” things and our Director, Sosun, has done wonders putting together this performance. Please click the link below on Friday evening at 7:30 and join in the fun! I’m sure you will find it enjoyable! If you can’t make it at that time, it will be available to you at any time afterwards. https://youtu.be/dNF51K5It48
Last week I listed Dave Hayley’s email incorrectly, here’s the right one:  davidahayley@outlook.com. If you’re interested in helping out by doing some gardening around the church, let him know.  Also, we are starting up our door campaign again and hope to initiate some of the work while the church is closed.  Please consider giving to this special fund.
I hope you’re getting outside to enjoy the changes that spring is bringing. Take care and stay safe.  
Yours in the love and friendship of Christ, 
Rev. Dr. Christine Johnson
