TO SUPPORT OUR VACANCY SEARCH TEAM
Rev. Abiel would like the congregation to light a candle in their homes every Wednesday evening at 7 pm for about 10 minutes until a new minister is selected. This shows our Search Team we support them and with the help of the Holy Spirit to guide them they will make the best selection of a minister for our church.
This Sunday we ask you to This Sunday, we pray for the ministry personnel in our midst – whether they be with our own congregation or our colleagues. We pray for their well-being, compassion, strength and joy. Christmas Blessings to all.
