Along with Pastor Grace and the rest of the church staff, the Staff-Parish Relations Committee is excited for the New Year and the start of Pastor Tom Rawlinsonâ€™s service to Community UMC as a new pastor.
We have scheduled three in-church activities to welcome Pastor Tom to Community.Â There are also some in-home events being offered and scheduled.Â If you would like to host a home gathering as a way to welcome and visit with Tom, thatâ€™s fantastic, and we ask that you coordinate this through the SPRC, as a way to avoid crowding these events.
There are two informal coffees, hosted by the Staff-Parish Relations Committee, scheduled on:
- Informal Coffee, Tues, Jan 3, 10:30 am â€“ 11:30 am, Room 307
- Informal Coffee, Thurs, Jan 5, 10:30 am â€“ 11:30 am, Room 101
Come when you can during the hour and stay as long as youâ€™d like.Â Even if you can spare only ten minutes, this is a great chance to greet and welcome our new pastor.
Also, weâ€™ll be holding a noon potluck luncheon in Fellowship Hall after the OnCenter contemporary service as another opportunity to meet and visit with Pastor Tom:
- Potluck Luncheon, Sun Jan 8, 12:00 pm, Fellowship Hall
The SPRC will provide sandwiches and a welcome cake, and attendees should bring salads and other sides (not desserts).
We do hope you will be able to join us at one or more of these events!
