The things you do for love
A major goal in starting King of Peace eight years ago was that we wanted to become so important to our community that if in ten years we shut our doors, people who had never attended the church would miss us. It's one way of stating that we want to reach out to our community sharing the love that Jesus has shared with us.
This is why a major focus for the church's Mission Vestry (church board) has been to get us moved from a septic system to being on city sewage. This would seem like a small project, but there were political issues, then engineering issues, then funding issues and contractor and subcontractor issues. We are nearly there, thanks to the whole vestry and particularly to Colby Stilson and Bob Shirley, both of whom have stayed on top of this project. So why the fuss? Because we were maxed out. We were over taxing our system and would need to do less, not more, if we didn't make the switch over.
In future years as this ministry expands and grows and is able to do more for Camden County, it will be because of the hard work and dedication of this year's Mission Vestry in making this project happen. In hindsight, it will seem like a no-brainer decision and an easy task, but trust me, this has taken tenacity. I am honored to serve with such a committed group.
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
