We announced today that we will be moving this summer. Effective July 1, 2006, our Bishop has appointed me to serve Jefferson United Methodist Church in Jefferson Hills, PA, the South Hills of Pittsburgh. The ministry seems to be a very good match, and, while we are saddened at leaving people we have learned to love, we are excited about the opportunities ahead. I'm sure I'll be blogging about the transition more and more. Please keep my family, the Dawson family, and the Jefferson family lifted up in your prayers.

Rev. McIlwain,
Congrats on your new appointment. I'll be keeping you and your family and your new and old churches in my prayers! It's been great to find some familiar Western PA faces in the blogsphere!
