The Lord in His gracious providence has provided two new deacons as well as a new elder in the Russell RP Church. Since moving into our own building on one of the main streets in Russell in October of 2022, we have had a steady stream of visitors each Lord’s Day. As well, we praise God for recent additions in the membership of the congregation.
Due to this recent growth, the Russell congregation was encouraged by Session earlier in 2023 to prayerfully consider nominating men for the roles of elder and deacon. An election was held in November of 2023 and Jared Ayer and Jason Vedder were both ordained and installed as deacons on December 10, 2023; Aaron Pol was installed and ordained as an elder in the congregation on January 14th, 2024. We are so thankful to Christ for these men and their willingness to serve in His church. To Him alone be the glory!
