While we are looking forward to new ministry opportunities and are really eager to finally adjust to our new normal next Monday morning, we anticipate this Sunday - our last at GCC - to be an emotional day. It's hard to say goodbye to those who have been such a HUGE part of our lives the past 9 years of Jon's ministry. They have loved and supported us first as a couple and now as a family of 5. We've all grown and changed over the years, and we count it a blessing that God has allowed us to serve alongside the GCC family for so long. They will be forever in our hearts. We love these wonderful people!
So... obviously, this week is a week of lasts. Due to next week's God and Country service, this past weekend marked Jon's LAST Sunday night preaching in the pulpit. It was followed by our last Sunday night trip to Frisch's - the after evening service hang-out spot. Jon had to head home in order to keep his early bedtime... the alarm clock goes off way, way too early each morning, but the kids and I enjoyed our meal with great friends. Here they are cheesing with 3 of their best buddies... Ben, Beth, and John Darrell will be missed for sure!
