Though we flew into Pennsylvania through snow in APRIL, we could not have had a warmer reception to our new home and ministry. Thank you for the beautiful way you welcomed all the Crumplers this past weekend. It was electric to be in worship with you – the music was inspiring and preaching for the first time as your new pastor was truly unforgettable. We were overwhelmed as person after person shook our hand and hugged our necks welcoming us at the lunch and reception after church. You were generous in every way. We got on the airplane headed back to Atlanta feeling the best kind of tired.
Every connection we make with you as a church family is another confirmation of God’s leading us to be there with you.
We will officially be with you on June 18, but between now and then, Mark and I will be praying for you daily. Praying that you will continue to take steps to Jesus and share Him with your city and the whole world. Praying for your Session and Staff as they continue to lead you well. Praying thanks for the rich heritage of the church and praying expectantly for the next exciting season. Praying for all that God has in store for us with you in the years to come.
Please also pray for us as we end our ministry at Peachtree and celebrate the relationships we hold dear here in Atlanta.
Mark will be with you on Mother’s Day weekend to preach in all five services. So, he will look forward to seeing you in person in a few weeks.
We couldn’t be more energized by you, our new friends and church family.
Rev. Dr. Marnie Crumpler
