    Dear Chanute FUMC Family, I am excited to be appointed to serve as your Pastor and have been counting down the days for the move. I would like to tell you some about my family. I am married to Demian who is originally from Minneapolis, MN. We have been married for 7 years and have 3 wonderful children. Martin age 4, Andrew age 2 and Christian 8 months.

    I got my calling when I was entering the 9th grade at a Christian senior high camp and after High School I attended Southwestern College in Winfield KS and received my BA in Religion and Philosophy and then after that I went to Duke Divinity School where I received my Masters in Divinity. I am in my 9th year of ministry. Chanute will be my 3rd appointment. I am constantly learning new things about ministry and love to try

    new things which help me grow as a Minister. I am excited to grow in ministry with Chanute and look forward to getting to know each one of you.

    Blessings, Rev. April

    NOTICE OF NOTICE OF NOTICE OF NOTICE OF DEFECTIVE PASTORDEFECTIVE PASTORDEFECTIVE PASTORDEFECTIVE PASTOR

    It has come to our atten-tion that the pastor we are receiving was shipped with a slight defect: she is not psychic. This defect neces-sitates certain special procedures to ensure optimum performance of the unit. 1. It is necessary to inform her of any members who are hospitalized. 2. It is necessary to inform her of any members who should be added to the "shut-in" list. 3. If someone you know is sick or otherwise in need of the pastor's prayers, or if you know of someone who should be included in the prayers on Sunday morning, the pastor must be told, or she won't know. 4. If you are in need of a pastoral visit or some other service from the pastor, you will get best results if you ask her. We regret any inconven-ience this may cause. If these special procedures create an undue burden, please feel free to send the unit back, and one with full psychic abilities will be shipped as soon as one becomes available.

    Camp Chippewa Please pray for all our kids who are going, or have already gone, to Camp Chippewa / Institute this Summer that they may grow in their understanding and their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Camp is a great opportunity to make new friends, to have fun, and to grow in faith. However, it can also be a time of anxiety and loneliness, especially at the beginning of their time away from home. Please pray for their protection and for peace in their heartsalso just that they will have fun
