After a long period of being unemployed, I can finally say that I will start a new full-time job on Monday. I will work for the Allegheny Valley Association of Churches as the coordinator for the Self-Sufficiency Program. Today's Valley News Dispatch had an article about the program. I just spent three and a half hours today following the current coordinator, and I know that I will be on a steep learning curve.
When I was the pastor of a church and frequently had to deal with people who came to the church door looking for various kinds of help I was glad I could rely on the expertise of the staff at AVAC. Now I will be in a different role, but still trying to help people in need.
In addition to this new full-time job, I will continue supply preaching in various churches. My preaching schedule during February will be as follows.
February 7, 10:30 AM, at the West Glade Run Presbyterian Church in Kittanning.
February 14, 11:15 AM, at the Tunnelton Presbyterian Church.
February 21, 9:30 AM, at the Jacksonville Presbyterian Church in Kent, and 11:15 AM at the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Lewisville.
February 28, 11:15 AM, at the Tunnelton Presbyterian Church.
