Pastor Lowell Karnes and his wife, Svetlana, have now been in Vienna for a week. They received a warm VCC welcome at the airport from Tony and Nicole Wrixon, and were received at the new Manse by Mary Geissler, our Moderator, and Anne Storey, our Membership Chair. It has been an eventful week so far and Svetlana accompanied Anne to Burgenland. The Board is planning a larger reception so that the congregation has the opportunity to meet Pastor Karnes and Svetlana on an informal basis. Stay tuned!
