The ICF Council is pleased to recommend that Julieta Concepcion and Cathy Macqueen are appointed as ICF Elders.
We are delighted that they are willing to serve in this way. Please read the background information about Julieta and Cathy, which will be given out at church on the next four Sundays.
If you would like to give any comments, please contact any of the present ICF Elders.
We are planning on having a Ballot for all ICF church members on this recommendation on Sunday 26th April.
Please be in prayer as we seek to appoint new ICF Elders. Three of our present ICF Elders are leaving Cambodia. Mark Fender has now left, and Knut Iversen Foseide and Rachael Litchfield will be leaving within the next two months.
We are encouraged that Julieta and Cathy are willing to serve the ICF in this way.
We are still seeking to appoint at least two more Elders, and especially men.
Please prayerfully consider who in our church family would make a good and Godly Elder. Please give your suggestions to any of the present ICF Elders. We are not looking for volunteers- but suggested names for consideration.
He talks about it frequently. It seems to shape His way of working everything out. For Jesus, the Kingdom of God is His framework for what God is doing in the world. It is His road-map for mission. And it is at the heart of His Gospel. So making sense of this Kingdom is absolutely essential if we are to be his followers. The Kingdom gives us concrete hopes for the future even as it helps us figure out how to serve God right here and now. This Kingdom is the context in which personal salvations flows. Throughout March in the ICF services, Graham Chipps will present a series of addresses on this Kingdom that Jesus loved so much to talk about. As well as a general overview, we will trace some particular themes of the Kingdom: the presence of God, the centrality of the King, the hope of the nations, and the grounded character of the Kingdom in God’s creation.
