Thank you from Paul & Sharon Appel

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ of Joy

Thank you for all you did to make our last Sunday together as parishioners and pastor memorable. The kindness you extended to Sharon, me and our family that day matched the kindness you have always shown us throughout the past eighteen years. That kindness is a fruit of the Spirit which you have produced abundantly, I expect, as long as Joy has existed as a congregation of Christ’s church.

Sharon and I appreciate the gifts also. Our children and grandchildren had a good time unwrapping all those bills!! The crystal remembrance marking my forty years of active parish ministry and Sharon’s role in that time of service we have displayed in our new home.

May your light reflecting the love of Christ always shine. May your celebration of God’s grace, mercy and peace continue without end. May every day be for Joy a new day for sharing Jesus and yourselves with your neighbors.


Paul & Sharon Appel
