Sunday, May 31, will be Pastor Dan and Marianne’s last Sunday with us. We wish we could have a big celebration and wish them farewell, but since that can’t happen, we will have a “drive through the parking lot and wave good-bye to them” party. Adhering to the rules of COVID-19, no one can leave their car. Between 12:00-1:00 pm, plan on driving through the parking lot and waving at them or wave a farewell sign. They will be near the portico to wave back. Please enter from A Street coming into the church parking lot through the Clocktower Shopping Center and leave via 70th Street.
If you would like to contribute to a gift, please send your check to the church office and put “Pastor Dan” in the memo. We will do a small gift card to a sporting goods store so he can stock up on fishing and camping gear. However, the majority of what is given will go to the Lincoln Food Pantry, per Pastor Dan’s request. We will present Marianne with a bouquet of flowers as she has also been a big part of our church family.
