A Little Help for a Friend

A Christ Church mission plant is looking for a pastor. The families of Covenant of Grace Church in Elk, Washington, began worshipping together in August, 2002. The church currently has seven households in faithful attendance and is in a position to call a pastor. The pastor needs to be committed to the Reformed faith, covenant renewal worship, Christian education, and the cultivation of parish community. Elk is a rural setting, located just 30 minutes north of Spokane. Those interested should contact Douglas Wilson at PO Box 8741, Moscow, ID 83843.
