Members of Council:
And now just like that, we’re into June……May ended up differently than planned, but we are always able to overcome challenges and move forward. The Parish House roof project has been completed with new shingles. Unfortunately, we were not awarded the grant from the South Dakota Historical Society. On the other hand, we are fortunate to have several others donate to the cause and this again is very much appreciated.
Heading into summer, we have many plans! For instance, Watertown Love will be hosting Pride in the Park on June 26, 2021. This is a free event in our community and our church will also have a booth with information. The Foster family will be assisting with this, so please watch for ways you can help with this event. As you know, this is important as we are an Open and Affirming congregation. We respect and love each person created in God’s image. All are welcome to join us in our loving church community.
With this being said, Pastor David will host another special vision meeting the evening of June 9th, much like the meeting that was held on April 14th. You can attend in person or via Zoom- details will be coming soon!
Finally, we have decided to move forward with having a church float again in the 4th of July parade in Watertown. We will be ordering paper fans like we have in the past to provide to spectators. Please consider helping with decorating the float and walk along to pass out fans. Let’s have a large presence out there this year!
Last but not least, we are pleased to announce that Pastor David Jennys will become our full-time intentional interim minister for the next 18 months. We value Pastor David’s leadership and energy in helping our church move forward in this time of need.
