The session was pleased to formally accept Troy Gottier and Meegan Canny-Gottier into the membership of Shady Grove Presbyterian Church. The family has been attending for several years and many of you have gotten to know Troy, Meegan, and their children. Troy and Meegan will be introduced to the congregation on April 22, 2018. Another blessed event on that date will be the baptism of their daughter, Kayleigh.
The session also approved the request of Steve Holdsworth to be baptized on April 22nd. This will probably be Steve’s last opportunity to worship with Shady Grove as he will be moving to Seattle, Washington. Please make a point of wishing him well.
Rev. Christians and the Worship Committee are considering incorporating a passing of a Welcome Pad into the worship service. This would serve at least two purposes, it would make it easier for us to get to know the people seated next to us in worship and welcome any who might be visiting with us. It would also allow us to sign up for special events like the Wednesday Night Suppers while the thought is fresh on our minds.
Rev. Will is on vacation May 21-28; Rev. Dr. Courtney Pace will preach on Sunday, May 27. He will also be away the following Sunday, June 3, for his grandfather's funeral. Rev. Ruth Lovell-Bradham will preach that Sunday.
