Community Garden Contributions

Posted on Oct 9, 2015 in Fresh News

The SPCC Community Garden team harvested and delivered 45 lbs. of sweet potatoes to Friendship Trays last week and sorted out about 15 pounds worth for the Soul Kitchen, too!  This brings our contribution to Friendship Trays for the year to over 100 pounds of produce!  It’s been a fun year!  Contact any of us (Carol, Peter, Jim, Betty, Rene, Cathy, Dave, Ed, Alicia – Is that everyone?) if you’re interested in being a part of the Garden this fall or next year.

Elementary school age children and younger meet with Ms. Tanya to learn and experience the Bible through storytelling, art, and play.

Hello from Pastor Bruce…

Posted on Sep 15, 2015 in Fresh News

Greetings Friends,

I feel privileged and honored to have been called to serve SouthPark Christian Church as Interim Pastor.  When Kevin, Brayden, and I started attending SouthPark almost a year ago, we obviously had no idea that I would become the Interim Pastor less than a year later.  But God works in mysterious ways.  It is mind boggling and awe-inspiring.
As I get settled in this new role, and as we all begin our work together, I want you all to know that I strongly believe in the open door policy.  Please never hesitate to come and speak with me at the office, or call and request that I meet you somewhere.  My office hours will be Tuesday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm.  Of course during those hours I will also be visiting our homebound parishioners, doing hospital visitation, as well as other ministerial duties that can take me away from the church office.

A brief biography:  I was born and raised in Seattle, WA.  I was raised in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  I lived for several years in Wiesbaden Germany, and for 6 months in Auckland New Zealand.  I graduated from Andover Newton Theological School in 2013 with a Masters of Divinity, and was ordained at Hope Central Church (DoC and UCC) in Jamaica Plain, MA.  It was at Andover Newton that I met Kevin, also a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School. Kevin is also an ordained Disciples of Christ Minister.  We married in 2010 and have one son, Brayden who just started Kindergarten this Fall.  I completed a Clinical Pastoral Education Internship for Hospital Chaplaincy as well as a First Year Residency of CPE at Duke University Medical Center with an emphasis on Palliative Care.  In addition, I just completed a Second Year Research Fellowship at Carolinas Medical Center where I established the Spiritual Care Department at The Levine Cancer Institute.
I am very excited about embarking on this ministry with each of you, and I look forward to seeing what God has in store for us at SouthPark Christian Church.

Blessings abound!
Pastor Bruce
