Reception for Rev. Dr. Cynthia Davis
Sunday, Feb. 17 | Noon | Parlor
Earlier this week, Bishop Bill McAlilly named Rev. Dr. Cynthia Davis superintendent of Mississippi River District. She begins her duties March 1 so this is her last Sunday at Christ Church. (She will be at the Special General Conference next week.) We were certainly surprised at the news, but know that she will be a blessing to others as she has been to us.
Stop by her reception in the Parlor after church this Sunday at Noon to show your love and appreciation to Cynthia and Sonny.
