Has Pastor Art been limping?
He sure has. A significant issue with his back and the associated pain has kept him largely out of commission, laying flat on his back except for brief periods of time. Art is on sick leave pending surgery scheduled for Nov 19th to address the problem. Pray for the hands of the surgeons, healing and a return to health. In the mean time, our Lead Pastor Team will have Jeff and Ben covering the bases along with the lay Outreach ministry team.
