Congratulations to our own Mark Gorveatte who was elected District Superintendent of the Indiana Central District at a reconvened district conference held in Indianapolis last Saturday. Mark will assume his duties in late June. We wish him the Master’s very best in this new assignment.
The mission team to Nicaragua that came from our churches in Truro and Blacks Harbour has returned home safely. The team to Haiti from Crosspoint is also back safe and sound. Have you been on a missions team trip?
