Cindy Storrs Has Resigned

11/1/2018
 
The Program Manager of our Neighborhood Services Center, Cindy Storrs, has resigned her position; Cindy did a lot of good work to make our ministry to those in great need stronger. In part because of Cindy, we are offering more services, we are better organized, we have more volunteers, and our core volunteers are cohesive and strong as a team. I am thankful for this and will miss Cindy. 
 
But the work we do through the Neighborhood Services Center is bigger than any one person. Everyone is important and no one is irreplaceable. Everyone has gifts and talents to share and they are needed. But no one carries the whole load.   
 
The Leadership Council, church members, people from other churches, CSUMB students, Interim Social Workers, and our core volunteers get an incredible amount of work done. Every week several hundred people come through our doors and are served with love and caring. 
 
It really is a miracle what we are able to do. We have been called for such a time as this. The example of Christ leads us and our core values of love, faith, unity, acceptance, and worship are what we evaluate ourselves by. 
 
I thank Cindy and all of you for the impact that you have had on the Neighborhood Services Center.  
 
Blessings and Shalom,

Adult Children

Back from a quick trip to Spokane, WA to see my son and his girl friend. Spokane is a very pretty city of about 250,000 at the tip of Washington, about 15 minutes from the Idaho border. Mornings are in the 30’s and the fall colors are exploding with beauty. We hiked and played dominoes and just hung out together. What fun we had. Such a joy to spend time with adult children. Thanks be to God. 
 
For this Sunday, read Mark 10: 17 – 31. A wonderful story about Jesus and a conversation he had with a man with many possessions. With great love he challenged the man with the one thing he lacked. What was the one thing? If Jesus was talking to you, how would he lovingly challenge you? What is one thing you are lacking? 
 
Blessings,
