North San Juan Community Church News

It is with great sorrow and grief that I let you all know that I am forced to step down as Pastor of North San Juan Community Church.  My health depends on it.  On June 24th, 2017 I was stricken with harsh kidney pain.  I was forced to leave my house cleaning jobs and to delegate authority with some of the community outreach programs.  (It is very hard for me to ask for and accept help when I need it.)  To date, the doctors still don't have a diagnosis, but I am in for some painful procedures in 2018 in order to procure one.  Not the best way to start a new year, but with hopes of some sort of surgical fix.  Just know that it has been my sincere honor and pleasure to serve as resident Pastor in North San Juan for the last three years.  I will still be available for a couple of community outreach programs as well as house calls for various family needs and of course - weddings.  Hoping to return when I feel better.  Prayers, white light and good thoughts are greatly appreciated. Blessings, my beautiful community,  

Pastor Pinkie
