995917_10151401019962242_1537704071_nWe are so very proud of Shasta, our DCE, for graduating from Union Presbyterian Seminary with her Masters of Arts in Christian Education!  This has been a 4-5 year journey that has seen its share of highs and lows.  Throughout it all, though, Shasta has worked hard to better herself for ministry at our church.

Occasions such as these deserve to be celebrated – which is exactly what we’re going to do!  Please join us immediately following worship on Sunday, July 21 in the Fellowship Hall.  We’ll gather together over some light hors d’oeuvres and congratulate Shasta on her wonderful accomplishment.  There will be some other surprises as well.

Don’t miss it!

(Here’s the Facebook event if you do that sort of thing…)
