Hello Students and Parents!

McKenna here! I just wanted to send out an letter to you all in case you hadn’t heard some COS family news. This Sunday, after United, will be my last day on staff with COS. It has been such a privilege and joy to work alongside your students and get to do ministry with them! Our COS students are some of my favorite people in the whole world. As some of you may know, my family has had a hard year. We lost a friend suddenly who was as close to a second son/brother to my family as he could been. As you can imagine, this has been a hard season to navigate all of this through a busy and full schedule. This next season will be one of pursuing health and a slower pace to figure out some next steps. Like I said, I absolutely adore this community and Saddleback will always feel like home. I have so much love for Taff, our church and SSM.

Moving forward, vocalists and parents, Taffy will be your go to. I LOVE YOU STUDENTS and am SO proud of who you all are. Keep pressing into what Jesus has for you. See you all at United!

Love, McCountry

We love you, students!

Taffy & McCountry
