Who’s coming and who’s going? Update on Change of Appointments

19A scribe then approached and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” 20And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”   Matthew 8:19-20

Who’s moving?  Have you heard in through the grapevine?   Well, here’s the news straight from the horse’s mouth (or straight from the horse-loving DS).   But do remember that appointments aren’t final until the Bishop fixes them at Annual Conference.  Please support our moving and retiring pastors at the Send-off Luncheon on May 14, 11:30am-1:00pm, with food by Southern Way catering, door prizes, brief program, & fellowship.   Sign up here: https://forms.gle/YbNcSYbLa4Gxh4Qg9
