A Time of Transition – What’s Next ?

With my retirement, Sardis will enter a new period of transition. There will be many questions, some can be answered now and some only later as the church moves through the process.  

On Monday, April 27, I will ask the session to call a congregational meeting for Sunday, May 17th, 2015 in order to “dissolve the pastoral relationship” between myself and Sardis. The language sounds so cold, but it is an important part of our Presbyterian Polity. My last Sunday in worship and the pulpit will be June 14th, 2015.

On Tuesday, May 26, 2015, the Presbytery of Charlotte will send a representative from the Committee on Ministry to guide the session through the important steps and decisions they will need to make during this interim time.  

The Presbytery of Charlotte will work closely with the Sardis session and members of the congregation. They are experts when it comes to navigating the waters between pastors.

Jeanne Hammons, our Clerk of Session, will keep all of you informed as the process of transition gets underway. In the meantime, let’s follow the advice of scripture, “As we constantly keep each other in our prayers.”

God bless,
Tom

Tom's Letter to the Congregation

Trey Dean:  #TheSoulfieProject

Young Sardis member, Trey Dean, is making headlines for his idea, The Soulfie Project. Trey questioned the selfie trend and his answer to it was to take a look at what really matters, your internal characteristics. Trey wants us to look inside and tell the world what characteristic we most like about ourselves by posting a picture of it written or video explaining it and using #TheSoulfieProject.

You can see the coverage from WBTV here.

A Gift Has Been Received from the Estate of Maida Frye

maidaA gift has been given to Sardis from the estate of Maida Frye, who died in December of 2013. For many years she was a teacher at Eastover Elementary School. She was a member at Sardis for 52 years and served in numerable ways. She was elected a deacon and an elder, was active in the Christian Education ministries, served as a Room-in-the-Inn captain, tutored at Rama Road Elementary, participated in local and international mission trips, and served at the Salvation Army Women’s Shelter. Maida was extremely active in the music ministry at Sardis. She was a member of the Sanctuary Choir for over 40 years, rang in Alpha Ringers, from 1977 – 1987 was a chaperone for youth attending the Worship and Music Conference in Montreat, directed the middle school youth choir, assisted with the Children’s Choir, assisted with direction of the Sanctuary Choir, and directed a chime choir for the Friendship Club.

The gift from her estate was designated in a way that reflects Maida’s service at Sardis. The major portion of the estate, 75% has been given to the Music Ministry for the purchase of a piano for the Sanctuary. The remaining 25% has been directed to mission.

pianoA piano has been purchased and is now in the Sanctuary. It is a Mason & Hamlin 7’ Grand Piano, Model BB. It was originally built in 1912 and has been beautifully restored, by Alexandar Brusilovsky of Richmond, Virginia in 2014, with a refinished mahogany case, new spruce soundboard, maple pinblock and bridges, composite action, and keys made of bone and ebony, to the level of a new piano. According to Mason & Hamlin, this Model BB has redefined what a 7’ piano should be, with a substantial tone and perfectly balanced scale. A dedicatory recital will be given at a future date.

 Maida’s family directed that the portion of the gift for mission be used to support the OFCB Ministries School in Haiti. A designated fund will be established as the “Maida Frye Haiti Education Fund.”  Mission Interpretation will disperse a monthly gift, through Friends of OFCB Ministries, to the school’s operation fund, until all funds are used.haiti

 We are grateful to Maida’s estate for this gift and rejoice in the ways that this gift will keep on giving. For years to come the music from the piano will inspire our worship of God and the gift of education for children in Haiti will transform countless lives. These gifts will be a joyful reminder of Maida’s gracious spirit for whom no job was too unimportant or unappealing, if it was the job needed to be done to serve Jesus Christ. To God be the Glory!
