New Pastor Elected

Dear Church,

We are pleased to announce that Rev. Rick Harris has been elected as the new pastor for Elgin Community Church. He has received 100% support from the members and will be inducted in due course. Rick and his wife Jennifer will be moving to Scotland with their two youngest daughters soon. We are very excited about this new chapter for our congregation and look forward to welcoming our new pastoral family.

God bless you all,

Elgin Community Church Council

Election of Future Pastor

Dear Church,

As you may well know by now, following the announcement at our church this morning, we have the appointment of a potential new Pastor to consider.

Pastor Rick Harris will be preaching to the church on Sunday morning the 2nd October at 10.30am via Zoom, and there will be an opportunity for the church to meet Rick and Jennifer (his wife) via Zoom on Tuesday 4th October at 7pm.

This “Meet the Harris’s” chat will be carried out at the church building, then it will be followed by a short business meeting for members only. We, as a Council would encourage you to attend in person as this shows both our commitment to each other as a Church, and will also facilitate the taking of a confidential vote once we have had a brief discussion. If, for some reason, you are unable to attend at the church building, you would be able to join from your home via Zoom, and arrangements will be made for you to cast a confidential vote by texting Bishop Dereck Grant who will be overseeing things. We can no doubt give you his contact details at the meeting.

We would encourage you to prayerfully consider this opportunity we have over the coming days, and look forward to seeing as many as possible at both meetings.

If you are interested in joining any of the online meetings, please email us at elgin@cogscotland.org or send us a WhatsApp message at 07828 321 993. You will then receive the Zoom link.

God bless you all,

Elgin Community Church Council
