The Limavady congregation in Northern Ireland and a very good number of family and friends met on the evening of Sabbath 14th May for the ordination and installation of Mr Marcus McCollum to the office of ruling elder.  Rev Raymond Blair conducted worship, preaching from Romans 12 v 3-8.  His subject was ‘Important Truths about Spiritual Gifts – The Divine Source, The Diversity and The Dedicated Use of Gifts’.  The requisite questions were then put to Mr McCollum and the congregation before further direction was given to the new elder by his pastor.  Afterwards a time of fellowship was enjoyed over supper in the hall.  Marcus follows his father, John, and grandfather, Marcus, into the session of the Limavady congregation.
