Bulletin – April 2023


Past Month.

Ordination Service.
It was a celebration! It was the event of the year! Six brothers were ordained to the diaconal ministry – Vladimir Yevtushuk, Vitaliy Shapoval, Pavel Lutsik, Alexey Illyuk, Vladimir Gula, and Vladimir Garbuzov. There were many guest pastors, both from neighboring churches and from other states. The ordination service was officiated by Bishop Viktor Limonchenko, who is the Assistant Superintendent of the Slavic District of the Assemblies of God. Also participating in the laying on of hands were our Senior Pastor, Mykola Illyuk, and Vasily Mamnev, Senior Pastor of Grace Church, Minneapolis. The other pastors and ministers supported them in prayer of blessing. After the service all of the guests and ministers had a good conversation over a delicious lunch.

You can look at the full photo report of the service HERE, you will need the password “BOLchurch” to open the album.

NSD Midwest Regional Ministers Meeting.
On March 25th at our church was a meeting of Ministers of the Slavic District of the Midwest Region, there were ministers from several states. These meetings are held every two years to re-elect the regional pastor. Once again, our Senior Pastor Mykola Illyuk was elected Midwest Regional Pastor, and Pastor Kostantin Lubimov from Texas was elected as his secretary.

Mission trip to Mexico
Another missionary trip to Mexico took place from March 11-17. The three church buses were full of youth and teens and it was a blessed trip. You will hear more testimonies and how the Lord used our missionaries at the April 23rd Missionary Service.

Important Information for Parents!
A special request from all children’s and teens’ ministries. If your child is sick, sneezing or coughing, please do not bring them to church for services or children’s choir practice. We have so many children and they get infected from sick children very quickly. It is not aesthetically correct, goes against common sense, and is not fair to the parents who are doing everything they can to protect their children. Thank you for your understanding.
