Pastor Elina leaves TRMA and welcomes Pastor David Malina to the position of Dean!

Pastor David of Christ, Waterloo has been appointed the new dean of the Two Rivers Ministry Area, following Pastor Elina’s resignation.

She has accepted a 3 years appointment as intentional interim pastor of the South Grey Bruce Lutheran Parish, a family of 3 congregations (St. Matthew, Mildmay, St. Paul, Neustadt and St. Paul, Normanby).

The people and congregations of the TRMA are eager to build on their relationships established with the implementation of the areas. Our history is short, but is one of concern for others, including those on whose land we reside. We seek reconciliation with them. #myELCIC #ESynodELCIC

Pastor David is welcomed by us. We look forward to his leadership and our shared ministry! Give us joy, we pray, in serving.

Barnyard RoundUp! – VBS 2016 at Faith, Fergus-Elora and St James, Fergus

St James Anglican and Faith Lutheran in Fergus-Elora, Ontario have hosted Vacation Bible School together for 6 years! Lots of planning, preparation, and cooperation have gone to each of those VBS weeks … for the benefit of the whole surrounding community. And lots of great friendships, mutual support, and encouragement of each other’s ministry have happened as well. Thank God for good neighbours! ‪#‎myELCIC‬ ‪#‎ESynodELCIC‬ https://www.facebook.com/FaithChurchFergusElora/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1001243696661036_DSC5659 _DSC5790 _DSC5802 IMG_3100 _DSC5662

CHICKEN BBQ SUPPER A GREAT SUCCESS.. AGAIN!

The folks of Faith, Fergus-Elora, offered their annual community chicken bbq supper in support of their ministry.  When we work together, others see, as well, our love for each other. Hopefully, they are encouraged by our love in Christ to look deeper into their own need for faith. The smiling welcome others receive is the one Christ invites us to give all strangers. It is the one that returns more than our cost to us. Funds received to support our ministries are signs of the greater riches we receive.  So, let us be people in mission for others, using all avenues available to us. Blessings to all TRMA congregations in their outreach!
