New Deacons Selected from Among Us

At the church meeting on 24th January, we selected people to serve among us as trusted servants. Though we planned to appoint five deacons, six were clearly recognized and we agreed to appoint them all.

The deacons of Alva Church for the foreseeable future are:
Jim Anderson
Carol Anderson
Rev. John Furmage
Mary McFarlane
Moira Peters
Hillary Watt

Rev. Jim Taylor has agreed to continue in the office of Secretary
(for not more than one year)

The Deacons will gather on Wednesday 20th February
to agree on areas of gifting and calling.

We thank the deacons who have served over this past season and, though they may be entering a season of rest, we hope you will join us in praying for their continued place in the congregation.
