Phil Hardy, pastor of Life’s Journey UCC and Religious Affairs Chair of the ANAACP. We dedicate this resolution to the members of Life’s Journey for the overwhelming generosity and hospitality given to our organization as the church has served as home to the ANAACP. We look forward to continuing our close relationship with Life’s Journey, and wish them the best in this exciting time as they transition to a new home.
