Last Saturday the 27th of July 2013 we gathered in thanksgiving to the Lord at the induction of Kevin as Evangelist/Pastor of our local church. Friends and family joined us in this event full of encouragement, joy, emotion; and above all, praise to our Lord.
The service was led by Pastor Barry King, secretary of the Grace Baptist Partnership who preached on Romans 15:23-33: Paul’s Desire, Duty and Dream.
A special mention was given to our former Pastor Bill Colder and our former moderator Keith Barrett, who served the Lord for many years and who were present alongside their dear wives. Thanks were also given to ministers present and members of nearby churches who have prayerfully supported the work at Halling through the years: Waterford House (Strood), Enon (Chatham), Ryarsh, Borough Green, among others.
The Church at Halling also showed great appreciation to the wives of Barry King, Daniel Shwe and Kevin for their involvement and support of their husbands’ ministries’ in the resent months. After a precious time of worship, prayer and exposition of the Word, we all enjoyed a time of fellowship with the sharing of a meal.
