Rev. Nordstrom very much appreciates the warm welcome she received from the congregation during Candidating Week, and is deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve and be a part of our beloved community of memory and hope. The board and the SMSC offer our thanks to the congregation for your patient support for the search process and your thoughtful participation in it.

With Joy and Gratitude,
