Sunday, February 26 was a very exciting morning for our church! We had special guests, George and Lil Goertzen with us. Lil, Office Manager/Communications Coordinator of the Evangelical Mennonite Missions Conference, gave a brief report on what is happening throughout some of the churches of EMMC and brought greetings for us from the office.
Following her report, three couples were commissioned into fulfilling the elder roles in our church. The three elder couples are Henry and Marianne Peters, Bryan and Lynda Driedger, and Tony and Carol Hiebert. Our church welcomed these couples in when they were nominated and voted in for this role in October 2016, but they didn't officially start until January 2017. It is amazing to see what God is already doing through these three couples to minister to the fellow believers of our church!
