3 New Local Church Elders Ordained! Last Sabbath, we were so pleased to ordain and commit 3 new elders to our church for Spiritual care! Lorena Salto, and JoAnne and Darryl Lightford have long been serving our church well, and we pray for the Holy Spirit to maximize their efficacy for blessing our faith community.
