The Weekend!

August 31, 2010

Who posts information about the weekend that just past on a Tuesday? I do, and so do a bunch of others. So here goes.

This past weekend we had a pastor candidating weekend at Fourth Ave. Bible Church, and what a weekend it was. Friday started off with a bang, as the couple, Abe and Kathy Klassen, had a few meetings in the afternoon, followed in the evening with a meet and greet at the church where they gave their testimony, then we spent time in prayer.

Saturday saw the couple meeting with more people from the church over a brunch meal, then they spent the evening with the Lead Team (= Board) from our church during supper. I can only imagine that by the end of the evening, they must have been sick with the amount of questions that had been thrown their way.

But it didn’t end there. Sunday morning we had donuts and coffee while Abe led in a devotional, then more questions were asked. For those keeping track, he is unfortunately a Saskatchewan Roughriders fan, and will fit in well with the Byggdin’s who are also Roughies fans (at least Jordan has turned over to the Blue). Abe preached during the service Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon was down time. A chance for the couple, and everyone else who was meeting’d out to rest and relax. The evening meant one more meeting. More questions for the couple. Questions for the Lead Team and a vote.

100% in favor. Awesome.

We welcome Abe and Kathy with open arms, and I personally look forward to serving with him in ministry. May God direct our path, and may we heed the call for the community of Niverville that he has laid before us.

    I’d just like to go on the record and say that I am now a committed (and rather apathetic) agnostic when it comes to football loyalties.
