Recent weeks have been marked with civil unrest throughout our country due to concerns of racial discord. Our Serve The City board has also concerned itself with this and is having discussions now about how we can work to bring our ministry partners together to be a witness to racial reconciliation in our area.
We pledge as the Serve The City board to seek unity through understanding and to better reflect the makeup of our city as we give voice to those in our community from whom we need to hear.
Thank you for your partnership throughout these past many years! We now look forward to what God has in store for us as we are faithful to our calling in these extraordinary times. We look forward to our witness together to our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Bob Westfall, Chairman
and Your STC Board
