Sherry Ingham has been working at BPC for ten years as of this spring! We are going to celebrate that anniversary this Sunday in worship. Sherry, however, does not like to be the center of attention. When Charles Taylor decided this fall that it was time to end his work at the church as parish associate, it gave the Personnel Ministry the perfect opportunity to thank Sherry and Charles together. 

A parish associate serves at the request of the Pastor, and can help in a variety of ways. Charles was visiting the home-centered at Alex’s request before I came, and continued at my request, attending staff meetings and at times conducting memorial services for saints of the church he had known for many years. As Church Office Manager Sherry does all kinds of things to make life easier for everyone and is the face and voice of the church for those in the community. So we are pleased to take a moment in the service to give thanks to God for Charles care among us and for Sherry’s ongoing service. Personnel will be providing refreshments in the Gathering Space after worship. Come and say thank you to Sherry and Charles.

Peace,
Catherine
