Deb Saffin commissioned as Lay Pastoral Associate

Something exciting is happening at Christ Church. Beginning September 1, Deb Saffin will begin working with us as our ¼–time Lay Pastoral Associate.

Deb is a faithful woman and member of Christ Church. She has been honing her knowledge and skills through the Education for Ministry program, as well as taking the courses required for being a Licensed Lay Minister. She also brings incredible skills from her work experience. She will work with Yme Woensdregt as she undertakes a ministry of congregational visitation, and developing a visiting ministry in our midst. She will also work closely with our Prayer Chain, and participate in the leadership of worship as appropriate.

We are grateful for Deb’s vocation in this ministry, and look forward with great anticipation to what this enhancement of our ministry will bring.
