June 25, 11 a.m.: Saying Goodbye to Rev. Michelle
It is time for to say good bye to Michelle Collins who for the past 2 years has been the bridge between Heather and our incoming assistant minister, Katie. She provided so much to all that she has touched with her vision, energy, groundedness, and organizational skills. She will be missed. On Sunday, June 25, Michelle will be doing her last service at Cedar Lane before she moves on to her new church and life in Lewes, Delaware. There will be a reception after the service to celebrate her time with us and to say farewell. Please join us to say thank you to Michelle for all that she has done.
