We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for the time she has spent with us over the past 5 months. Janet has truly left her mark on us as a congregation and has been vital to the continued success of our church during Rev. Jim's absence. From sermons, to visits, to funerals, and day to day life, she has truly felt like a part of the family. We wish her all the success in the world on her upcoming ministerial call and hope she will not forget about us, because we will certainly not forget her.
