Mark your calendars and spread the word! We will be having pastoral installation services October 15th and 16th. The installation service will be Thursday, Oct. 15th with Rev. Gary Blankenship as the guest speaker. Friday night, Oct. 16th, the installation celebration will continue with Rev. Nathan Dudley as the guest speaker. Services both nights will begin at 7:30 P.M.
This is going to be a great time of worship, the Word, and fellowship as we celebrate what God is doing among us. What started as an outreach service in October of 2013 has developed into a church and will be made official with the “laying on of the hands by the presbytery” (1 Timothy 4:14).
The Holy Ghost has certainly sanctioned this union and the assembly has recognized it, but this will be a time when the Apostolic community endorses it which is an integral part of the process and necessary for our success. We, in turn, are recognizing our inclusion in the part of the larger body of Christ.
