Pastor of Online Community

May 2021


Since “retiring” from ministry with Santa Fe 4 years ago this month, my heart has never left the Santa Fe Community I love! So when Pastor Mitch asked me to pray about coming back on staff as the Pastor of our Online Community; offering fellowship, faith, and friendship (if even from afar) I knew this was God’s invitation. Besides as His children, we never retire from ministering (living) in the name of Christ!

So what does this mean for me and for you? And what does this mean for the folks who have never entered a church building, or who find that their life-style or work schedule, or health issues, don’t allow for the opportunity to join in-person on Sunday mornings? It means there is still opportunity to be connected to a community; to enter into worship with others virtually yet in a very personal way. It means that FELLOWSHIP is possible whether you are home bound, traveling for work or vacation, or still uncertain about coming back to the church in person since the pandemic; THAT’S OK…YOU are welcome to join worship online, YOU are welcome to connect with other believers online. YOU are welcome to join us in a TIME OF FELLOWSHIP which will follow our 11:00 am Sunday morning worship service online, BEGINNING SUNDAY, MAY 2, 2021. Just follow the directions given on the screen at the end of worship. Grab your favorite mid-day drink/lunch/snack and within a few minutes we will meet on Zoom for Santa Fe Fellowship. DO NOT HESITATE to ask for technical help! We’re all learning.

Like any new ministry, please allow for grace as we work out the bugs, explore new ways to be “together in Christ” and enjoy each other in a relaxed, non-threatening way. COME AS YOU ARE…let’s be real, let’s just enjoy the Lord’s love and share it with one another in a non-threatening way. I can’t wait to see you!

I am thrilled to be back in fellowship with the loving, insightful, faith-filled community that is Santa Fe. Please invite friends, family, and strangers to join us.

1 John 1:3
“That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have
fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.”
