Hello Grantham Church,
I wrote in the Pastor's Email yesterday that I have good news to share with you.
I'm excited to announce that Pastor John Yeatts is coming back on board the church staff to serve as the Congregational Care Pastor!
John will help give attention to pastoral care needs at Grantham Church in the coming months. This will include things like pastoral counseling, hospital visits, funerals, etc.
Pastor John has agreed to serve part-time until the end of the year, at which point we will revisit his and our staffing plans for 2017. Join me in welcoming John and Amy back to Grantham Church!
As you know, Ron and Barb Burwell have been faithfully serving as Ministers of Congregational Care since last year. They have agreed to shift their primary focus to building up our small groups, learning communities, and greeters ministries as our Community Life Pastors.
The Burwells will continue to serve part-time until the end of the year, at which point we will revisit plans for the coming year. Please show them your love as they continue ministering among us.
On behalf of your church staff, thank you for supporting the ministries of Grantham Church. We believe great things are on the horizon.
Please join us as we seek the Spirit's leading into God's good future.
