Moderator’s Report – 2021

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


As I searched for a bible quote for my report I kept coming back to my favorite bible verse.  I feel this verse helps us through whatever life gives us. During this time with the pandemic and all the variants that have come along it has helped me to guide the church and the congregation in a safe environment.  I did not do this by myself as I had help from the Church Council and the Pastor. 

This year was anything but normal but we have survived and are looking forward to a better 2022. 

We were able to open the church the first of May with masks and social distancing.  It took a few weeks before people started coming back and some have still not come back, but they enjoy the service on Facebook.  There was not any socializing after church with coffee and cookies which people told me they missed.

Some of the Church Council and congregation attended a Zoom workshop on revitalization of the church from Rocky Mountain Conference.  It was very informative and lead the way to come up with guidelines for Church Council.  Some also attended a Zoom Open and Affirming workshop over a four week period from UCC.   If nothing else we all became more familiar with working Zoom.

In November we were able to decorate the church for Christmas.  It always looks so wonderful.  Thanks to all the volunteers to showed up.

I want to thank Sue Jones our bookkeeper who kept the bills paid. Randy Hudson for cleaning and making repairs. Susan Doherty for her beautiful music. And to Stevie Astley and Danny White for the anthems they put together.  And to our Pastor Gaye for her sermons and work she puts into each week’s service.  Also, to Pastor Glenn and Robyn Firth for keeping us on Facebook all this time. 

This is my last year as Moderator.  It has been a great honor to serve all these years and I want to thank everyone for their support.  I could not have done this without all of you.  I plan on staying involved with the church and the council.  I look forward to seeing you in 2022 and am praying it will be a better year for all of us. 

Again thank you to everyone.
