A Message from Pastor Toby Joeckel:
Hello! What a great welcome I had as we
began our time together in this interim period.
I am excited to be here and already I see potential! The first step in the
interim period is getting to know each of you! So for the next several
Sundays I will be asking you to sign
up to see me. I call it “little visits with Pastor.” I look forward in
doing ministry together."
