Pastor Lane speaking….
would like to give a big thank you in advance to all
the people who are filling in for me while I am on
sabbatical. Sue Ferries will be the liturgist for
almost all the Sundays. This is a big commitment on
her part. So a special thank you to Sue. Other
people are going to be doing home communion and
hospital visits. The council cabinets heads have
their duties and the building project will be under
way. It will be a busy three months here at Cross of
Christ. I will be praying for you the whole time I
am gone. Thanks again, everyone, for allowing me to
have this time of sabbatical.
the saints in Christ @ Cross of Christ:
thank you so much for all the genuine hospitality we
enjoyed. My family was blessed by our time here. And
thank you for the wonderfully cool summer you lined
up for our time with you.
you for your patience with a bible thumping,
evangelical German Lutheran and all my enthusiastic
ways. I pray some of the ministry I introduced will
continue to have an impact, especially the
congregational prayer group and re-launched youth
thank all of you for the opportunity to be here. My
time with y’all invigorated me for my ministry back
home and helped clarify aspects of our ministry.

with us some Sunday. We would love for you to join
