More than a love song title, this phrase describes the feeling when you have invested so much in people you care about in a church family. And it should feel that way.

The church community is different from a business or school. The whole basis of our being together is a specifically invested, loving and personal relationship borne out of the invested, loving and personal relationship with an intimately personal God. It is a healthy sign that it is hard to say goodbye to these we care so much about.

So it is that we say goodbye to our Facilities Manager Greg Harris and our Contemporary Worship Leader John Hames. A corporate security firm made Greg an offer he could not refuse to work as a VP in downtown Dallas. His last Sunday with us will be Nov. 5. Our Staff Parish Relations Committee decided that it was time for a change in leadership in our contemporary worship service as we seek to expand the reach of that service, and parted ways with John.  We thank both Greg and John for their service and wish them God's blessings in the next steps of their careers, even as it is hard to say goodbye. 

Grace and peace,


Matt Gaston
Lead Pastor
