On Sabbath 8 October Cloughmills RPC in Northern Ireland were delighted to ordain and install Mr Cameron McCauley as a deacon. This was a particularly notable occasion as Cameron is the first covenant child of the congregation to be ordained within it!  Joel Loughridge, the congregation’s minister, preached from 1 Timothy 3:13 on ‘The Deacon’s Reward’. He encouraged Cameron and the rest of the congregation that although service is costly, it is an overall gain – God blesses those who serve well. The charge to new Deacon and the congregation was to fix their eyes on Jesus as the very definition of “serving well”.
