It has been a privilege to serve on your council for the past 5 & 1/2 years and on the property committee for 7. This was an extraordinary year of unforeseen challenges and changes. One of the largest was having our Pastor leave suddenly and her assistant soon after. Know your council is doing its best on meeting these challenges. Like all humans we make mistakes, but with a full council hopefully these will be minimal. Know that all of our ministries are functioning and serving you and the community.
This is a time CGS surely needs us all to step-up and volunteer our time and talent. PLEASE when asked do lend your talent, and when volunteers are needed step forward or volunteer. Where you see a need, ask one of the council members. Also please let us know what you think. The council needs to hear from you, for you are the essence of CGS.
CGS has met these types of challenges before and some that make these seem small. Working together has always been the answer!
I have faith in God and in you that we will succeed and be even better.
I am continually amazed by our community’s generosity both financially and emotionally.
My God bless us all.
