Katie Watkins will start officially on July 27th, and between now and then will be beginning to learn more about our church and our systems. We will be setting up conversations with our finance and stewardship teams, as well as some open conversations so that you can get to know her as well.
We had wonderful turnout for our annual meeting this year; thank you to everyone who showed up and participated. If you missed it, you can find the slideshow here.
