Joe Garber joined the EMM office in July 2022 to serve as the Church Partnership Coach. His EMM involvement has included 17 years on the EMM Board, as a mission worker in the Bronx, NY, and with his wife and family he served in Tanzania and Albania. Joe served as the lead pastor of Byerland Mennonite Church for 26 years.
Yvonne said “yes” to Y.E.S. (Youth Evangelism Service) as a young adult; she feels indebted to EMM for providing this transformative discipleship opportunity. She is grateful for this season to minister as she and Joe travel together. They both enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren, bicycling, walking, gardening, and road/air trips.
Church Building Closed
This is just a reminder that on July 2, our Church Building will be closed as we meet at Woodcrest Retreat Center. While we don't want to inconvenience anyone, we find that this annual retreat is a great time to connect with others in the congregation in a more relaxed setting.
