Following our announcement on Sunday 4th October, as many of you will have heard, after much prayer and hearing God, Roy and Brian have decided to retire from Eldership. They both are and will remain spiritual fathers in our CLC family. They believe it is now time to step back from the responsibility of Eldership to make room for new younger Elders to emerge. We will be taking time in our next two services to honour two Godly men who have served us with excellence. I would like to thank them again for their Godly example and faithfulness to God and to CLC. I am also thankful that they have both agreed to remain available to me and the elders for advice and wisdom.
The Elders and I have been praying and will continue to pray and seek God for the appointment of new Elders. We believe God has been speaking to us about the next generation and we will continue to seek Him in the coming weeks. Before we look ahead to the recommendation of new elders to our members, and the subsequent appointment of any new elders; we believe in this moment it is important to focus on celebrating the wonderful service of Roy and Brian, giving honour to both of them. If you would like to send cards or gifts to Roy and Brian and don’t have an address then we will gladly receive them at church and deliver them on your behalf.
Please be praying for Roy, Brian and their families at this time. Please also pray for the Elders as they seek God for the next season.
Love & Blessings
