Two Rivers MA gathers at Christ Waterloo March 20

At 7 pm at Christ Waterloo, we will gather to hear all about the big changes happening to the physical plant of Waterloo Lutheran Seminary beginning in May, explained to us by Rev. Dr. Mark Harris, current Dean of the Seminary. We will also be considering what it means to be in ministry “with”, and not “for” others, specifically relating to our indigenous neighbours, facilitated by Deacon Scott Knarr of Mt. Zion Lutheran. Come for an evening of information, and inspiration!

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.
