Dear Skycrest family,
A huge thank-you for those who made it possible for my family and I to get away for a long weekend and visit my parents in Ohio. We spent time throwing the football in the yard, hiking the nearby trails, attending a couple of Fall / Halloween events for the kids, and worshiping at my parents' church.
Thanks to Rev. John Powers for sharing an awesome message on justice, mercy, and humility, and to Joe, Brooke, Barb, the band, choir, and all the other volunteers who make Sunday morning services happen.
You may have heard that it's "Pastor Appreciation Month." Maybe you've seen posts on Facebook or cards at Hallmark. (And thank you, by the way, to those who have reached out with a note or kind word.) You may or may not know that we are blessed at Skycrest to have numerous retired United Methodist pastors who are part of our congregation. Some of these folks have retired from other Conferences, some from Florida. All of them have been a tremendous help and support to me; preaching during my maternity leave, bringing communion to the sick and homebound, serving as liturgists, teaching classes, and otherwise sharing their talents with all of us, even in retirement!
This coming Sunday, I will be interviewing a few of our retired clergy as a special panel discussion sermon. You'll hear about their special experiences in ministry, their favorite Scriptures, some of their more hilarious stories, and the messages they think God wants Skycrest to hear. You don't want to miss it!
It's also that time of year when our snowbirds are returning. If you see faces you don't recognize sitting near you in worship, don't hesitate to say hello!
This is also a great time to start thinking about where you park when you come to church, as our lots will start filling up soon. If you can walk a distance, consider parking on the street on Nimbus Ave., Cirus Ave., or Mercury Ave., or on the grass behind the basketball court.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday at 9:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.
Join us this Sunday! 9:45 a.m. Modern | 11:00 a.m. Traditional
