Bulletin – February 2023


Past Month.
Perhaps the highlight of the past month was the annual membership meeting, with 286 out of 500 members attending. We all heard the pastors’ reports and their vision for the year, as well as the report of the finance department and the main ministries of the church. Six brothers were approved for ordination to the diaconal ministry to be held on March 26. We’re also elected two candidates for deacon ministry, they are Vitaliy Pulber and Michael Kolomiza.
60 people have responded to the request of the church leadership to serve in a ministry, thank you very much! The leaders of the ministries you would like to serve in, will contact you. We want every member of the church to serve with the gift that the Lord has given to them, if you need help finding a ministry, contact one of the ministers or leader of your home group.
The membership meeting concluded with one more event, Deacon Michael Osenniy officially resigned from the Church Board at his own request. He had been on the Church Board for 14 years, as a good counselor and example to the younger ministers, cheerful and positive. Brother Michael is the leader of the Communion Preparation Ministry, which he will continue to do.

Always happy and positive brother Michael Osenniy is with youth after the members meeting.

Service Change in February.
One of the big events this year is the opening of the third service. The church leadership has long prayed about it, pondered it, planned it, and agreed to open a third Russian-speaking service. The reason for this decision is lack of seating in the main Russian-speaking service and always having to add plastic chairs, which are not very comfortable to sit on during the service, and it also leads to a violation of fire safety, exceeding the number of seats. We believe the decision to open a new stream will solve several problems at once, although temporarily, but we are looking to expand the building in the future. It also presents us with a new challenge to bring new people into the ministries, so that everyone finds themselves involved in the church. Newcomers from other states and churches, when they come to our church for the first time and see an overcrowded church, they know it is going to be uncomfortable. So we want every service to have 10%-20% of seats empty for guests and new people.
So, starting on February 19, the new service will be at 8:30am, the current service will be moved to 10:30am, and the English service will remain the same at 12:30pm. All three services will be an hour and a half, with 30 minute breaks. What will the new service be like? – Time will tell. Perhaps it will be a bit of a traditional style because of the lack of singers and musicians especially. But it will be an encouragement to those who want to serve and opportunity to engage new people in ministry. Volunteers needed in Kids Church, Worship Ministry, Ushers and Media Ministry. If you have not yet committed to a ministry somewhere, you can do so here.
