Margaret, Eva, Jackson, and I just returned from a wonderful vacation time back home where we enjoyed seeing old friends, spending time with family, and indulging in all the foods we miss! While it was great to be there, it is also good to be back “home” among you all. 

I want to thank Pastor Rachel and our whole amazing staff team for covering all the bases while I was overseas. I know they did an excellent job, just as they always do! And I have heard excellent things about another fabulous VBS run by Sarah Baldwin and her team of fantastic volunteers. Great job, everyone!


With vacation time behind me now, I am super excited about the rest of the summer and all that we have coming up, including an exciting series of summer sermons from the New Testament book of Ephesians, as well as some very special Hands-on Mission opportunities such as a morning serving our mission partners at The Arc and our annual School Supply Drive in support of the amazing teachers of Nassau County.


While in Northern Ireland, many friends and family asked me about church and how things are going. Each time I was asked, it gave me great pride to be able to tell people about all the good work for Christ that takes place through our life together at Memorial.  I don’t know if we tell you this enough, Church, but you really are doing a wonderful job of being the church and embodying God’s grace for our community and world.


I’m so proud to serve among you, and I cannot wait to see you on Sunday morning.



Pastor Charlie
