A Note from Pastor Rafe

Wow, what great Easter worship we have had the last few weeks! Resurrection Sunday, Confirmation Sunday, makes you excited for what is coming next week! Actually I am sad because I will not be here next Sunday. I will be out of town doing a wedding this weekend. I am sure you feel it too, a sadness, a "something is missing" feeling when you have to be away from your community of faith and miss worship. There is a hole in our lives when we are not with our brothers and sisters in Christ for worship.

Please be in prayer for me and my family over the next few months. Our schedule is full and chaotic with family events and graduations. This weekend I am away with a wedding. Then in early May I will be away for my oldest son's graduation in Arizona. We will then begin to pack up my family for big transitions. I will take a couple of weeks of vacation (late May/June) for packing, another wedding, and the big one, my youngest son's high school graduation!

After those couple of weeks and family stuff I will be attending the Florida Annual Conference of the United Methodist church in Daytona Beach (June 10-13). Shortly after that our mission trip to the Dominican Republic.

All of these events will cause me to miss more Sundays than I would like. I miss my community of faith when I can't be there, don't you? Sundays are full of energy and hope and that is because I get to share worship with you. When you are not there, we miss you.

He is risen! Let us worship the Lord.

Blessings, Pastor Rafe​
