Grace Church extends a warm welcome to our new minister: Rev. Dr. Keith L. Posehn and his wonderful wife, Tracy.

Keith began his service to the church over 30 years ago. He served in youth ministry for 20 years at FOPC, St John's Presbyterian Church in Reno, and Folsom Presbyterian Church in Folsom CA. He served as an Interim Pastor in Sacramento Presbytery five different churches and most recently served as the Interim Head of Staff at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Pensacola Florida.
Keith co-founded the office of Chaplain for the Folsom Police Department and served the FPD for five years supporting both the officers and the victims of crime in the community.
Keith is the Founder/Director of Heaven Help Me!, consulting for churches in the areas of Leadership Development, Vision Planning, Staff Development and Calibration, Worship Strategy and Presentation, and Stewardship. He is also continuing to release new volumes in his hilariously unconventional devotional series, "Good News and Grins To Go" designed specifically for Kindle Readers on smartphones.

Keith and Tracy love their adopted state of Florida and Keith is excited about serving Grace Presbyterian Church.
It may not be a surprise that I loved school. As summer drew to an end, I would be so excited getting all of my school supplies organized and ready for the first day of school, which was the day after Labor Day where we lived in Michigan. We would go to the beach on Labor Day weekend, typically for the last time until the next summer, and I would spread out on my beach towel in the sand and read the books I’d selected for my first reports. Fall was around the corner and school was starting.
I have had that same feeling for the last few weeks….. And now it is as if school has started early! We don’t have to wait for September. The time has come. Our new year begins August 1 this year.
We start with the first Sunday in August – Pastor Keith has arrived and will be in the pulpit. Jackie Major has returned from her vacation and will be at the organ. The Grace Singers will be in the choir loft. And we are hopeful that many vacationers will be in the pews, back from their travels and ready to worship and celebrate communion together as we start a new chapter at Grace Church. You will not want to miss August 3.
Our celebration continues – the second Sunday of August, Nina Morales will play her violin at the traditional service. She and her parents are hosting the coffee hour in Fellowship Hall between the services to thank the congregation, as we celebrate Nina’s exciting adventure. She will be leaving to begin her college career at Harvard. We will most certainly miss her and look forward to her trips home from college. We don’t know when we will hear her play again or witness her gentle style. She has grown up before our eyes …. You will not want to miss August 10.
I hope that during the last few weeks, while you counted heads and noted our low summer attendance, that you were taking note of those familiar faces (and backs of heads) who were missing. If you noticed even one, stop what you are doing right now. Look up their phone number in the member directory and make a call.. … Please start by asking how they’ve been and let them know you’ve missed them. And then remind them that August will be an exciting time at Grace. Encourage them to come home to Grace – their empty pew awaits them.
There has never been a better time to invite friends and neighbors to meet you on Sunday morning. So many residents of Spring Hill do not have a church. Let them know that we have an energetic new pastor who sparked a flame at Grace in June and is now going to be in the pulpit every Sunday. Suggest they come here him. Let them know that we have a wonderful music program that they will enjoy. And most importantly, let them know that they will be welcome at Grace Church.
So – the anticipation is over. Our new chapter begins. Come to Grace and help write our next chapter.
We will be waiting for you .... Jesus is Calling You …. Is your heart on fire?
See you next Sunday…..
