Howdy People!

April 8th will my last working day with First Congregational Church, and I wanted everyone to know the cherished time I have spent with all of you here before I leave.

Although I am quite excited for the journey ahead, I am sad to leave FCC behind. I’m excited to start a new chapter in my life with Darci in Minnesota, I want to thank you for the time we spent together. You all were ready to offer a helping hand whenever I encountered difficulties, and you all played an instrumental role in helping me become a better person.

Working here was a roller coaster ride for me – tight turns, steep slopes, and sometimes inversions, but at the end, an exhilarating ride. It’s been a pleasure associating with all of you, and I will look back on this time with extreme gratitude. I will miss the “Hi Frank” from the little voices in the preschool, the boisterous “Hi Frank” from our wonderful Dana, and the expressions of gratitude from all that I have met. I have nothing but great respect for Jonathan and church staff, Emma and the preschool staff; their guidance was instrumental in trying to meet expectations. It was great being part of several committees, seeing everyone’s commitment to making FCC the best possible place to be.

Within FCC and specific to work, I am thankful that I was appreciated for my work, my willingness to broaden my role, and was encouraged for my ability to do more than what is mentioned of the job.

I know I was challenging to be around at times and appreciate all your patience and understanding as I navigated through projects and processes.

It has been a joyful experience, and saying goodbye isn’t easy. But I am wishing each of you the best of health and continued friendship.

I look forward to our paths crossing again in the future! Best,
