Baptism, Ordination, Installation & Discipleship

On February 8, new officers Lisa Houlgrave and David Youell were ordained as ruling elders, and Lisa, David, Marti Wunsh and Leslie Jordanger were installed as officers.  Pastor Karen Witt led the service of ordination and installation with a reaffirmation of our baptismal covenant with God, anointing of the new officers, affirmation by the new officers of their fidelity to Christ, prayer and a charge to the new officers.  Pastor Karen’s sermon, inspired by Isaiah 40:21-31, picked up on the themes of baptism, cleansing and rebirth as Jesus’ disciples.

The members of Providence are grateful to Lisa, David, Marti and Leslie for their eagerness to serve, and we promise to pray for them and their ministry to our church and community!
