On January 7, 2018, the congregation witnessed the installation of a new Elder, Dave, and a new Deacon, Bill. Dave and Bill join the other Consistory members, Rev. De Vries, Elders Steve and Tom, and Deacon Brad, serving as office bearers for 2018.
Rev. De Vries’ sermon was taken from Zechariah 4:6 and the theme of the sermon was “By the Spirit of Jehovah.” The office bearers were reminded that they labor in Christ’s church not in their own strength or power, but in the Spirit of the Lord of hosts!
Let’s keep our Consistory in our daily prayers as they go about this important work in the service of God and may they be strengthened in heart knowing that their
“. . . labor is not in vain in the Lord.” We thank God for the faithful labors of retiring Deacon Paul and the faithful work Elder Doug rendered before he was translated to glory.
