God is Here! (Hymn 409 verse 4)
Lord of all, of church and kingdom, in an age of change and doubt
Keep us faithful to the gospel; help us work your purpose out.
Here, in this day’s dedication, all we have to give receive:
We who cannot live without you, we adore you! We believe!
Text: Fred Pratt Green ( 1988 )
Our Board of Deacons met this past Saturday morning, January 11 – the first Deacons’ meeting of 2020! Led by Moderator, Lisa Gage, members of the board volunteered for various positions and tasks so that our ministry will continue seamlessly into the new year. We were touched by the many notes of thanks sent by grateful congregants from the past year.
After our regular meeting, Pastor Deb led a training session to clarify in more detail the roles that Deacons play in our church. Pastor Deb also discussed congregational Table Talks and the process which will be used to search for a new pastor.
On Sunday morning, January 12, Scott Butler was ordained and installed as a Deacon while Deb Damick, Beverly Burrall, and David Phillips were installed for additional three-year terms on the Board.
In this time of change our prayer is to stay faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ by serving our church family as Deacons. Please consider how you can help in this ministry!
Blessings from the Deacons
