Pastor Gayle’s Office Hours
Generally speaking, Gayle’s office hours will be 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Monday through Thursday each week.  Of course, it is always possible that a congregational visitation, church-related meeting, or pastoral emergency may take her away from the church.  It is still best to make an appointment, if possible, by calling the church office or sending an email to the church address.  Please note that her office hours will differ on days when Cabinet, Guild, Confirmation or other groups meet outside of these regular hours.  Pastor Gayle will continue to observe Friday as her day off and will not schedule appointments on that day.
