Dear Cornerstone Family,
Thank you for inviting me these past 18 months into the role as your transition pastor. You’ve welcomed us and given me your trust and support. It has been great! God has been gracious and blessed Cornerstone and us during this time. Mary and I are thankful for you all. As I reduce my hours and find a different role here at Cornerstone, I will be increasing my hours with International Neighbors-Greeley. I want to invite you to continue to pray for my work with International Neighbors-Greeley, talk with me about developing a friendship with our neighbors or support the work that I do. Visit www.ingreeley.org for more information or give me a call/text @ 970-590-7292. Thank you.
