The proposal to renovate the church facility – what do you think? Since the session proposed the renovation months ago, there have been opportunities for discussion, questions, walk throughs and personal contact/conversation with elders, Tom Ochs and Pastor Michael.
This coming Sunday, June 28, immediately following our 10:00 a.m. worship service, there will be a congregational conversation between elders and congregation on this specific topic. Session will tell you of two actions that came out of their June meeting. However, the major point of this meeting is to LISTEN TO YOU. Please, please plan to come to worship this Sunday and then stay afterward for this important conversation. Please come with your questions, encouragement, concerns, gratitude, fears and hopes – the elders and I very much want to hear from you.
In Christ’s service,
Michael Rucker, Pastor
Good morning everyone.
God opened a door for me in October 2012. Above that door a sign read “First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood.” I willingly entered and have not looked back. The staff of this congregation – Judy, Shaun, Sunny, Rob – incredibly talented and willing servants. The elders and deacons I have worked with are indisputably and fully dedicated to God – Father, Son, Holy Spirit – and to this congregation and the community. And I have never had as much fun and challenge preaching to and serving a congregation as this one.
ALL TO SAY – this Sunday (32 + months after I walked through the doors of this church!) I will be installed as the full time Teaching Elder (Minister, Pastor, Reverend) of the First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood. I will be humbled and honored by your presence. The Word will be preached, the gospel will be sung, the people will celebrate!
See you in church – AT 10:00 AM – Sunday!
This is the morning we will install Pastor Michael as our full time pastor. A guest preacher, and two other pastoral friends of Pastor Michael will help lead the service. This service will be an upbeat and joyful time together. A luncheon provided by the Session and Staff will be held in the Gathering Place after the service. Please join us as we formally recognize the special relationship between pastor and congregation.
