Thank You to our Outgoing Elders
"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in every one. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." (1 Corinthians 12)
The elders in the Presbyterian Church work "for the common good." As our newly installed and/or ordained elders begin their terms of service in SVPC, we would like to thank those who have finished their time as an elected representative of this congregation. Our outgoing Elders have served as our partners in ministry and we appreciate all that entails. As they have served Christ and His church, there may also have been needs in their lives, but they remained committed to this faith family. They have faithfully followed the teaching of Paul as he said to minister with all your hearts "as working for the Lord, not for men" (Col. 3:23). Thank you, sisters and brothers, for your commitment to Christ!
