Exciting news! While we have been out of the Sanctuary, our Building and Grounds ministry has been busy enhancing our audio/visual capacity. A professional tech team has installed two cameras, a new sound board/mixer, the backbone of the video system, two new microphones (mini-boom) and in-floor microphone cables and monitor cables. It may take a little adjustment, but we are set for excellent sound and viewing.
Great news! Just when you thought you may have been too late to purchase a Memorial Paver for a loved one(s), we have a new paving project. This is exciting! There will be an extension of the Memorial Garden pathway to the Labyrinth. Our Labyrinth was originally developed by the Cancer Support Group in memory of members of the group who lost their lives to cancer. It being updated by Eli Hedblom’s Eagle Scout project. The new pavers will be the same as the ones in the Memorial Garden. If you would like to contribute an engraved paver, please call or email Jane Henderson, 910-448-2501 or email@example.com.
This rainbow display, designed by our liturgical artist, Ginger Hedblom, was initially created to celebrate Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples of Jesus. “I first used vibrant warm ribbons on our roadside cross,” said Hedblom. “However, it seemed a shame that such wonderful color should only symbolize one moment in our liturgical calendar. So, with this in mind, I felt like finishing out the spectrum to create a rainbow.” She said the symbology is different for every person, including young children who rejoice when they get to add a new color to their art work, others who believe it’s God’s symbol of hope, and for many more, it is a symbol of inclusion. “I like to feel all these things,” said Hedblom, — “joy, hope and unity for all of us.”
