1) Church Notices

~ Minister Replacement: The Eldad-Hampton Pastoral Charge wants to assure you that we have been in touch with staff from our regional council to begin the process required for a new minister. Briefly, the process involves the M&P (Ministry & Personnel Committee) to appoint supply ministers for the next few months while we undergo the many steps required prior to us posting for a new minister. Please pray for God’s spirit of discernment to be at work both in our churches/community and in our future minister.” Latest update is a search committee has been formed and we are awaiting our next steps to be provided by our United Church Liaison.
