Dear Members, Friends, and Guests,

This weekend, instead of celebrating the kickoff of another year of Sunday School classes, we are honoring the teachers that make it all possible.  From Pre-K to Coffee & Cake, our teachers commit to the long-haul of showing up prepared and ready to teach God’s Word.  Because of their commitment to Jesus and His Word, they don’t turn off the alarm and go back to sleep if they have been out too late on Saturday.  Instead, with smiles and enthusiasm, they give their best for Christ that we all may learn His Word.

In addition to a free lunch of Café Rio on Sunday at our fellowship event, I would like to honor and formally thank these men and women who lead our classes on Sunday and Bible studies during the week:


Bonnie Cochran

Larry Fleischer

Amanda Fonseca

Amy Goddard

Suzi Hartsfield

Tom Kish

Gail Norlie

Greg Norlie

Kim Ortega

Valerie Pomerenke

Christ Stingl

Shannon Williams

Karen Wilson


To each of you, know that you are appreciated, and may God richly bless you as you teach this year!

Pastor Mark
