Annually on the first Sunday of March the Presbyterian Church USA observes a Sunday to honor women in our congregations and in our history. On Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday we honor women who answer God’s call to leadership and service. This year we have invited a friend of Pastor Kimby Young to preach during worship. Sarah Evans has just completed her studies as a Commissioned Ruling Elder in the PCUSA. She is currently discerning her call to this new ministry. Ministry is not new to Sarah as she has served in various roles in the church since childhood, including most recently as an elder of Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Overland Park where Kimby served for 12 years. Sarah is a trained career counselor and life coach with many years of experience. She brings an enthusiasm for encouraging others and an ability to nurture the gifts of others into service and joy. Sarah has been supply preaching in Heartland Presbytery for over a year and will bring a Word for us on this special Sunday. Pastor Kimby will assist in worship and will share in offering the sacrament of Holy Communion. Plan to join us for worship on Sunday, March 4.
