Farewell Service & Celebration for Pastor Daniel – This Sunday, 11am

Greetings All,

We have much to look forward to this Sunday as we hold an outdoor, Covid-safe service, followed by a celebration in honor of Daniel’s time with us.  The weather is looking better all the time but if it’s not a large tent will keep us dry.  All are welcome!  Below are some important details and special requests:
  • Our service begins and 11:00 and our celebration will start immediately after at approximately 12:00 noon.
  • We will practice all state mandated Covid safe protocols.  Masks are required and social distancing will be observed.
  • Please bring your own chair, if possible.  We will have a few chairs available.
  • We ask those who can to park farthest away from the tent to allow those who need it to be closer.
  • A special, individually portioned luncheon will be provided.
  • We will have a table for cards or notes if you’d like to bring one.
  • This will be a time for reflection, thanks and bittersweet goodbyes.  There will be a time for anyone who would like to speak to share a thought or memory. 
  • If you have any questions or thoughts please reach out to John Myhre at jom@madriver.com or at 802-734-0423.
See you Sunday!
