Thank you, Mauri Macy!
We want to give our thanks and our blessing to Mauri Macy for faithfully and beautifully leading us into the presence of God as a congregation: Your gifts and skill as a musician have been exceeded only by your ability to not showcase those abilities, but rather to focus us on Jesus Christ. You’ve taught us about worship for decades, and we are grateful!
As we have planned a way for our congregation to say thanks, we have also listened to Mauri’s desire to “not make a big fuss.” A simple celebration fits and honors Mauri. On May 18, Mauri’s last Sunday leading worship, join us on the lawn for cake and coffee. We are encouraging people to bring written memories, thanks, and blessings to place in a basket for Mauri to read later. If you can’t be there on that day, you can bring the cards to the church office and we will deliver them on the 18th.
Please join us in thanking Mauri for his years of ministry with us at Newberg Friends Church!
