Hello Wright Church!  

 

I am excited about being among you, serving you, and reaching out to the community.  My first call was in Las Vegas where one of the leaders, a professor at UNLV, told me the most important thing for a pastor to do is to spend time with the people.  We certainly got a good start during the weekend I was there--thank you to all who came out to meet me.  It touched my heart.    

 

As I write, I am in the midst of packing and saying goodbye.  The church I've served for the past 11 years is also moving.  They are hopeful they will an interim pastor to whom I can give the keys this Sunday.  What an awesome work of God that would be!  

 

When I was in the midst of my own difficult transition, Jesus is the one who got me through.  The one who became my pastor during that time taught me the simplest one-word prayer...Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.  The picture is of me sitting with Pastor Duane.  Sometimes Jesus calls to us, like he did Peter, to walk on the water.  Other times, Jesus calls us to spend time on the dry land in prayer.  At all times, he calls us to be loved...loved by him, and love because of him.  

 

Oh, what love we will know as we journey together!

 

In Christ,

 

Heather

Office Manager Liz Vorbeck

I was born in Minnesota on the Iron Range.  I spent my youth years riding and showing American Quarter Horses, snow skiing and having fun on the farm.  In 1984 I moved to Boise to be with my family.  My husband, John and I were married in Wright Church in August, 2018 and consider our church friends family.  When Wright church's long-time secretary, Robin, retired and the church offered me the job of Office Manager/Communications Manager.  I felt is was the right opportunity to give back to our lovely church  and church family with my 29+ years of business experience.  I would love the chance to visit with you and share your thoughts, concerns and prayers for our continued community spirit and growing our precious and beloved church.  Cheers, LV
