When Mike Oates’ doctor delivered the news — nothing more could be done for his lung cancer — he went home and started making plans for the time he had left. It was a long shot, but at the top of the list was a long-overdue trip home to the East Coast and New York complete with a Yankees-Red Sox baseball game for his daughter, Laura. Oates’ list-making was interrupted by a call from a friend. She had recently lost her husband, one of Mike’s good friends, and urged him to find help and comfort in hospice care.

After the Easter worship service Sunday, April 20, Crosslake Presbyterian Church broke ground for a new Friendship Hall, a long-held dream of the congregation. Shown are Pastor Kate Stangl and members and friends of the church. The original building was dedicated in September 2001 and the congregation was chartered the following May. Since then, the congregation has more than doubled in size, necessitating the need for more space. The church plans to use this Friendship Hall for various church as well as community gatherings.
