A greeting from Pastor Dan
I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know you. I already know a fair number of you but I am really anxious to get to know the rest of you. Please help me out for a while with your names. 

We are moving to a new beginning – Easter. So it is with us, we are moving to a new beginning! I am returning to active ministry after a brief rest and you are beginning a new experience with another pastor. May God guide us together as we move and grow together.
