Pastor’s Note, July 2022
It was a joy to be with all of you for my first Sunday on July 3rd. What a wonderful and warm welcome. Thank you. I look forward to getting to know you better after our family moves into the parsonage in another week. Stay tuned for plans to connect!
We are finishing our second week of Freedom School at Ḵunéix̱ Hídi Northern Light United Church. It has been a joy-filled experience to see our 28 scholars singing, chanting, reading, and making new friendships within the spaces at the church. One of the guardians of three of our scholars said it well. He said, “Thank you for opening your home to us.”
We invite you to join us as a guest reader from 8:30 am to 9:00 am during Harambe. We also invited you to the “Finale” at Ḵunéix̱ Hídi Northern Light United Church on July 15th at 3 pm. Please contact Pastor Kristi ([email protected]) or Pastor Tracey Wolff ([email protected]) to participate.
We acknowledge the help and participation from so many of you. Thank you for providing resources, meals, housing, transportation, and hospitality to the scholars and to Pastor Tracey, Zaheer, Sheilah, Karly, Dr. Sabrina & Mr. Shakespeare. We are so very fortunate that they have come to Juneau to share their gifts and talents with us. We would not have a Freedom School without the support and love from so many gracious souls.
We held our last Cooperative Youth Group for this season on June 26th. It has been such an honor to be able to work with our amazing youth and to grow with them in discipleship and in ministry. I will carry the joy that I have for each of you in my heart as I move into a new ministry. I will continue to advocate for you, pray for you, and cheer for your continued growth and success.
Grace & Peace,
