TABER, Alta.—At the beginning of the year we began the search for new deacon couples. We spent time praying for God to reveal the right candidates to the members as we began the nomination process, and God answered our prayers. We elected two new deacon couples, Nick and Mary Enns and David and Agatha Reimer, into our ministerial team.
The Deacon Commissioning service was held on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017. The church benches were full of family and friends that came out to support our new deacon couples. They shared their heartfelt testimonies and the church stood behind them in support of the ministry to which they have committed.
Our Sunday School children blessed us with a special number during the service, followed by a Mother’s Day lunch for the congregation which is always well received.
Our church life is always busy; some days we might even say it’s too busy. But it’s during these busy times that we experience the Lord’s blessings in many ways. Our Sunday School committee and teachers have been a blessing to our children and parents again this year. I’m sure they all looked forwarded to their summer break to refresh and rejuvenate for the following school year and have benefitted from it.
We are busy here at the Taber EMC planning and preparing different activities to strengthen our fellowship and faith in our Almighty God so that we may be a blessing to our families and our community.
