Joni Thank You

Dear Church Family,

I am so grateful and overwhelmed by the love I have felt from this church during this last week of my retirement. I am thanking God for each of you and will always have you in my heart and prayers.

To the choir and all who attended the Wednesday night celebration, those who prepared the room and food, and to those who sang special music-thank you so much. It was so spirit filled and full of the Joy that only God can provide. It’s been such an honor to serve in this Music Ministry with all of you over the years. You were dedicated and focused on our “Audience of One” at every rehearsal, worship service and concert. Thank you for all the beautiful cards, donations, and charcuterie board with treble clef.

Thanks also to the SPRC and UMW and entire church family for the lovely reception and lunch on Sunday. The entire Bedard family was touched by the warm and joyful send off. It has been bittersweet but Keith and I are looking forward to a new chapter in our lives and a lot more golf!! Also looking forward to our first grandchild due in February!

I love you with the love of the Lord,
