Comments from Rev. Larry J. Edmonds

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Wow, it's hard to believe that we are entering into the sixth month of this year.

On June 3 we will be honoring our high school and college graduates. Reaching this mile stone in their lives are high school graduates: Joy Lagbo, Nadia Santiago, and Joseph Edmonds; and college graduate: Justin Lagbo.

We will celebrate Father's day on June.17. Annual Conference will be held on June.15– 17. School is out in June, yeah for both the teachers and the students. The summer begins on the longest day of the year, June 21. Many of you will be taking time away for vacation and as you do we will keep you in prayer. As I have always shared with former congregations, remember, God never takes a vacation so let's keep our tithes and offerings coming in to help maintain the life of the church.

We have reached the half way mark of our goal of $32, 000 for the roof. Let's all give a little extra over the next several weeks to reach this goal.

We need to meet again to finish writing our vision statement and core values. A date will be decided and announced in the bulletin. While VBFest will be a July event from July 4-11, we need to be getting ready to host that week. Please, let's do this to honor Kay and let the VBFest board know that we can do this. In advance, thank you for all that you are doing and will do for VBFest. And last but not least, I look forward to serving as your pastor for a fifth year. I pray that this coming year for us will truly be one in which we increase our faith in God and see new faces in our congregation. Let us all continue to find ways to invite and bring more people to join us here at Memorial.

To God be the Glory,
Pastor Larry
