GOOD-BYE TO THE WANGSGARDS
It is with great joy and sadness that we say good-bye to Chris and Kathy Wangsgard in our services this Sunday. Chris and Kathy have been a part of Desert Vineyard for 32 years serving our church body in the areas of the Vineyard Christian School, Children’s Ministry, Office Administrative Duties, Marriage and Family Ministries, Parenting, Lay Counseling and much more! Their ministry as a couple has been a true example of lives committed to serving God in humility and God’s grace. We share their great joy as they take up roots after living in the AV for 43 years to move and live near their son and daughter-in-law, Jonathan and Julie and grandchildren, Katie, Ellie and Silas. But it is with great sadness that we lose dear friends and ministry partners. We pray God’s richest blessings upon them as they begin this new chapter of their lives! We love you, Chris and Kathy!
