Following worship on Feb 16, our faith community gathered for fellowship and refreshments as we conveyed “best wishes” to Rob and Mary Ann Saunders! They have decided to move closer to their children and new granddaughter.  They have purchased a condo in Richmond, and even though they haven’t sold their home yet, they will move to Currituck, NC, while their house is being shown.  They have been an integral part of our faith community for 34 years and have done such a fantastic job, serving on the Session, singing in the choir, as well as supporting our congregation in more ways than we can count!  They have been involved in Living Waters for the World since the beginning, taking many trips to Guatemala over the years. They will be misses and we pray for this new phase in their lives.
