Welcome to our new minister!
Apologies that the news part of this web site has been neglected over the last couple of years, but this seems like a good time to get back to it and to bring you up to speed on exciting recent developments.
Two years ago we said farewell to our to our minister, Rev John Murdo MacDonald, who had been a very important part of Grace Community Church since our beginnings in January 2012 (and before then!). John Murdo and Sheila are enjoying retirement in Inverness and whilst we have many fond memories of their time with us we have been praying that God would open up the possibility of calling another pastor to serve with us here.
We are delighted that on Sunday 11th March we will, God willing, welcome our new minister, Rev Fred McFarland, to the congregation. He and his wife Celeste are travelling tomorrow from their home in Georgia, USA to Scotland and then heading north at the end of the week.
Please do pray for us as a church that this new chapter would be marked by God’s blessing, strengthening and encouragement and that through Fred’s ministry among us we would be not only blessed by God but that we would be made a blessing to the people of this area, introducing many to the love of God through Christ. Pray for Fred and Celeste that they would know much of the Lord’s help as they leave family and friends and adjust to a new part of the world, a new culture, people, ministry situation, etc.
