Hello Timberlake Friends,
On behalf of Staff Pastor Parish Relations Committee (SPPRC), I want to cordially invite you to a luncheon to celebrate Matt Laskey's ministry at Timberlake on Sunday, June 12, from 12:30-2:30 PM. Fried chicken, chicken tenders, rolls, tea, and lemonade will be provided, along with other goodies that I know everyone will enjoy. In addition, the congregation is invited to bring a covered dish side or dessert to the Family Life Center Kitchen.
If bringing food before the modern service is complete, please bring it through the outer kitchen doors. The warmer, refrigerator, and freezer will all be available as needed. I would encourage you to label your containers with your name, and please plan to take them and any leftovers with you at 2:30 PM or when you leave.
The event will be based in the Family Life Center. The Family Life Center will be converted from a worship space to a food and fellowship space immediately following the modern service. The pavilion area near The Fillin' Station will be available for gathering with your friends. There is not a formal program intended. Instead, each of you can use this time to share your stories, your feelings of gratitude, and your well-wishes directly to the Laskey family. The format will be much like Wednesday Night Meal and Thanksgiving meals that many have enjoyed.
Many of you have asked about how to provide a gift to the Laskey family. There will be a designated area(s) at the event for you to do so. You may also send anything directly to the Laskey family at 201 Sandown Circle, Lynchburg, VA 24503. Please note that if you are making a financial gift, this should be done directly to Matt Laskey and not Timberlake. As a 501c3, we cannot funnel financial gifts to a specific person.
We are sad to see Pastor Matt go, but we are prayerful and confident that God has big things planned for Pastor Matt's ministry and the ministry at Timberlake.
Stephen Tibbs, SPPRC Chair
