Welcome members and friends, and a very special welcome to you if this is your first visit with us! We have been blessed to be in community with one another for over 50 years. We invite you to join us as we "be and become more like Jesus to help our neighbors know God."
As you may be aware, James has been working through the process for becoming an Ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Reformed Church in America. The RCA takes this process very seriously and it is very challenging on a variety of levels. Last week James passed his "final exams" with the Classis of Minnesota, and is now eligible to be ordained. Last night the Consistory voted unanimously to approve a call to James to become Peace Church's "Pastor of Connections and Equipping". This "call" now goes to the Classis of Minnesota leadership for approval. Once approved, we are required to publish this at Peace Church for three weeks, giving members the opportunity to give their feedback or raise any objections. At the conclusion of that three week period, if all goes well, James will be ordained an installed at a special service of the Classis here at Peace Church. (Tentatively on the afternoon of August 22).
