Dear Church Family,
For those who were not able to attend/watch yesterday’s service, I wanted to let you know that after a lot of thought and prayer, I have decided to accept a full-time Children's Director position at First Baptist Church in Lenoir City. Though it wasn’t something I was actively searching for, and though it wasn’t at all an easy decision, God has answered several of my prayers through this job opportunity, and I really feel that this is where He is leading me. My last Sunday here at Shady Grove will be April 25.
I want you all to know how much I love you, and how much I'm going to miss you. You all have been like my family for the last four years, and I've really enjoyed getting to know each person in this church. I want to thank you for all the support and encouragement and love you all have shown Clint and me. We couldn't have asked for a better church to start out in. I want to come back and visit for turkey dinners and church picnics and easter egg hunts, and I hope you will all stay in touch because I count you as dear friends. I'll always treasure my time here at Shady Grove.
I love you all,
