Last Sunday, our members affirmed the call to Allison Ruari to serve as our Associate Minister. Allison will begin her ministry with us on November 15! She and her husband, Jared are now in the middle of the million things that come with relocating to Nashville. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Allison on Sunday, November 18, but we also want to give them a little time to arrive and settle in before we make plans for her installation and other big occasions. However, we will all have an opportunity to finally meet her in person and begin to get to know her on Sunday, November 1, after worship, at a simple reception—nothing formal, just Allison’s favorite snack. What might that be? Toasted almonds? Cereal balls? Pudding cups? Skittles? Piglets in the blanket? Well, favorite snacks will tell you a lot about a person. Allison loves hummus, veggies, and pita chips. So we’ll have ourselves a hummus dippin’ party! We hope you’ll join us and say hello to Allison.
