A Word From Pastor Siobhan

“Take Me To Church”

Dear Friends,

It’s official! I moved in on Wednesday afternoon, purchased my first Costco card last night, and this morning I pulled into my reserved parking spot to begin my first day as your new pastor.

My day has been flowered with beautiful encounters of those stopping by to welcome me and say hello. This morning I even witnessed a parade of our ECC kids as they waved their banners in celebration of Independence Day. Happy 4th of July!

I won’t deny that it’s been a whirlwind of a month but through it all I have truly felt the presence of God’s grace and joy. Packing and moving can be overwhelming work, but as my friends reminded me to take it one step at a time, one box at a time and one day at a time I’m amazed at how that which seems impossible can be transformed into the totally doable.   

With all that’s on the horizon for Memorial and the ways that God is leading us to move in a new direction, I know that we can take it one step at a time and one day at a time together to transform that which might seem impossible to the totally doable.

I’m excited to be writing to you. I’m looking forward to celebrating communion with you this Sunday. And in this moment, I’m honored to be sending you my first weekly message.

My prayers are with all of you. As we head into this 4th of July weekend I hope you might find the peace of Christ in all you meet and in all you do. 

With love, 

Pastor Siobhan

All the world sings summer
when bird and kid and cricket
chirp sun and greengrown fun.
There's triumph in your birthday
and cakes and hugs and glee -
friends and loves and cheery song
surrounding you and me.
