Reverend Leon Oaks-Lee led worship for the last time as our interim pastor on January 27th. During the service, members of the congregation expressed gratitude to him and reflected on his faithfulness, dedication, competence, and leadership in preparing the church for its next pastor. After his work, we as the church better understand who we are and what we aim to accomplish in the future. We wish him the best as he reenters retirement and goes on to help other churches, which we know will be fortunate to work with him.
