Our Growing Church

Last Lord's Day was an exciting day in the life of our church. As a body of believers we have grown over the last few years and the time had come for us to elect some local office bearers. Throughout the month of March the members of the congregation went through the process of election which culminated last Sabbath with an induction and ordination of one elder and one deacon. The messages of the day were delivered by Pastor Warren Gardner and can be heard on Sermon Audio here and here. The messages were encouraging as well as convicting for both the office bearers and the flock (well, at least I know from the flock's position). Our fellowship lunch ended with a celebratory cake, which also happened to be picture time.
Our newly inducted officers.

We all learned how to cut this cake properly. No you don't cut it like a pie!

Children quickly gather should have seen the face of the lucky fella who got the bowl full of icing from off the knife! :)
