The prayers of everyone, whether you were able to attend or not, filled the sanctuary with God's loving presence for the Installation Service. We were indeed blessed by the presence of all of the other congregations in this building as well as the many other visitors and the participants in the service. The reception afterwards was also joy-filled and delicious. A special thanks to Lois DeVeas for organizing and creating such a wonderful space for us to fellowship. -- Rev. Carol Cook
