October 29

Today is Reverend Caroline Berardi’s last Sunday with our congregation.  We will enjoy a covered dish lunch after our worship service in honor and appreciation of Caroline’s time with us.

Home grown Zinnias are placed in church today in honor of Reverend Berardi for her inspiration and work with the Pinetops Community Garden.  Caroline’s passion for community mission work inspired us to reach out and become active and visible in our own community.  Her enthusiasm and support helped create an ongoing outreach project for PPC which will continue to positively impact the children and adults in the Pinetops area.  We will never forget the seeds of leadership and love Caroline scattered among the members of our congregation and beyond to help the garden project grow and become a reality.
