Well, this is new and exciting, isn't it? I thought I should make some introductions, as I am new in this particular position. Although, you've hopefully seen my face around a bit. My name is Brooklyn Friesen. I am normally a senior youth leader here at LSCF, but for the next two months I will be wearing the hat of Youth Pastor! (Is it a hat? Overalls. It's definitely youth pastor overalls.)
Now, please don't panic. Steve isn't gone. Well, he is, but he'll be back! He's taken some much deserved vacation time to spend with his family. He and his wife, Karen, have three beautiful boys, and their youngest, Josh, just turned...6 months, I believe? So some family time is definitely necessary. If you want to keep up with him and his family over the summer, I suggest you check out their vlog! Yeah, that's right. Steve has a vlog. It's awesome. Here's the link:
I don't have a whole lot to add right now, but keep your eyes open for some events coming your way in July! I might post some devotions on here, maybe just write about my day...which at the moment is an empty office, so that might get old quickly.
Don't worry, I am keeping busy. I've got a lot of great ideas to share with Steve for the fall, I get to be creative, and so many lovely people from the church have invited me over for lunch! That's probably my favourite part of this job so far; getting to know the different people that make up this church family. Now if only I knew everyone's names...
So come follow along as I figure out who gets what mail, how to plan a youth event, and where to get a good cup of coffee in this town. (It's Darren Willems. In case you were wondering. #ChemexLife)
That's it for now, but I'll check in soon!
