Some of this year’s transitions were difficult: We said farewell and Godspeed to our Senior Pastor, Pr. Patricia Geiseman, when she retired in June. Yet other transitions were life-giving and joyful. Pr. Olson returned and joined as our Interim Senior Pastor. We hired two people to develop our Nursery Ministry. We created GraceRoad Ministry, a group for parents of junior high and high school students. We started PT2, a young child and young parent small group.
It was also a year of tremendous growth. We strengthened and nurtured existing ministries, such as The Neighbor Project. We walked in the Aurora Pride Parade to show our neighbors we mean it when we say, “All are welcome.” Each of the 600 students at McCleery Elementary School received a new book because of our partnership. Over 100 students, 60 of whom were from the community, participated in this summer’s “Who is My Neighbor” VBS and learned that all people are our neighbors.
We invite you to share the love. Click here to read the stories and testimonials in our "Year of Transitions" annual report.
