WOW! Let’s Celebrate our Twinning Agreement with Iglesia Bautista Emmanuel in El Salvador!
Jean Stairs is in El Salvador March 2016
On Tuesday, Aug 25/15 our Church Council approved and signed a formal agreement to twin with this amazing congregation and its Pastor, Miguel Tomas Castro. This is a significant action for our congregation as it is the first global partnership in Edith Rankin’s history. Iglesia Bautista Emmanuel is also a Mission and Service Fund partner of The United Church of Canada. When you give to the M & S Fund, you are helping to support this vital congregation. Our Twinning Agreement invites us to remember the congregation regularly in our prayers, to share information about our ministries and to send visiting delegations to learn about each other’s context for mission and ministry. Our children will be developing pen-pals this year with children of IBE. Adults and youth: stay tuned for an upcoming opportunity for Edith Rankinites to travel to El Salvador! A copy of the agreement is available for your perusal on our website and in a file folder on the table in the narthex.
