Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with great joy that I sit to write this letter to you, the members and friends of Community Presbyterian Church. I am honored and humbled to be called to serve as your Interim Pastor. Over the past couple of years as I filled in as Pulpit Supply and led worship for you, I knew that this was a special congregation. I learned that you are open and welcoming of strangers and neighbors alike, that you care deeply for each other, your community, and those in need around the world. I was impressed by your commitment to love God and your neighbor as yourself and how that showed itself in your generosity and your giving. In essence, blessed to be a blessing. It is my hope and prayer that my time with you as your Interim Pastor will be a blessing to you as well. The next 6 months and beyond will be exciting and challenging and possibly even trying at times. Yet we know that we can rest and trust in the strong na...me of our Lord Jesus Christ to lead us and direct us on our way. These are exciting times. God has called us to take a step of faith in our journey together and I can't wait to see where God will lead us!

As we take that step of faith together at Community Presbyterian Church, please know that you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. Over the weeks and months to come, know also that I will be here for you should you ever need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen. My heart and my door are open. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you all better. When you see me, please don't hesitate to tell me your name - over and over and over again if necessary - and to share with me your passion and dreams for this wonderful church. I'd also like to take a moment to say thank you to the Transition Team for their tireless work on behalf of CPC and their leadership and prayers throughout the call process. Your work is greatly appreciated!

God has big plans for us at CPC. I, for one, cannot wait to see how they unfold! "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!" (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Grace and peace to you this day and always. See you in church!

With warm regards,

Rev. Laura Hart
