Todd’s Take
Good morning and welcome to our worship service. If you are a guest with us this morning we welcome you and invite you to join in with us as we honor our Creator and Savior.

After nearly 12 years of serving PACOC as our building manager, Mark Ewig is retiring. Today during our worship service we will recognize Mark for his faithful service. We are so thankful for all the work he has done in keeping our facilities clean and working well. Few people know how much work it is cleaning up after us, setting up for events, and facilitating the repairs and improvements that are regularly required. And he has done all of this with a cheerful and kind heart. Thanks Mark for all you mean to us at PACOC and blessings in your next chapter!

As Mark leaves, we welcome Matt Hogan as our new building manager. Matt and his wife Carrie are long time members here at PACOC and will be a great addition to our team. Matt has been working with Mark this past week learning the ropes.

Tyler will be bringing us the message this morning as we are in Tennessee this weekend for a family wedding.
