Since January, we have been teaching about and preparing for this past weekend – the official constitution services of our church. On Saturday, we had a Celebration Service to which we invited friends from various churches around us. It was great to have nine different pastors attend the service, seven of which are pictured below. It was especially encouraging to have our pastor, Austin Gardner, and his wife Betty with us for this special occasion.
On Sunday, twelve people signed the church charter to become founding members of the church. They are pictured below along with Teri and me, Chris and Sherry Waye, and Pastor and Mrs. Gardner. Also, four people followed the Lord in believer’s baptism, including our youngest daughter Cali.
After the service, we took a photograph of everyone in attendance. As you can see the Lord, has greatly blessed the work here in Southeast London, and we give Him all the glory. You can watch a video about what God has done here.
