On Saturday Morning, your Regional Board met and faithfully worked to ensure the ministry and mission of the Capital Area Region was on track and vital. Moderator Kevin Wiggs, Moderator-Elect Miriam Gentler, Treasurer Paula Edwards led the meeting with insight and care.

Rev. McLellan's Installation Service program coverLater on Saturday, people from around the Region gathered at Shepherd Park Christian Church to celebrate the installation of their new Senior Pastor, the Rev. Terri Lynn McLellan. An ecumenically diverse group of clergy and lay leaders came together to install and support this dynamic pastor and this vital congregation in our Region. Rev. Dr. Reginald Thomas, Sr. preached on Joshua 1:1-11 “Moving Forward.”

A very ecumenical installation service for Rev. Terri McLellan

Then on Sunday afternoon we once again joined as the Body of Christ to share in one of the most sacred acts in the Church: to ordain one who is called to Christian Ministry. The Rev. Tracey Perry was ordained at University Christian Church, with many family & friends present. The Rev. Nathan Hill, pastor of University Christian Church, preached her ordination sermon, “Set Apart,” based on Jeremiah 1:4-10.
