Covenanting service for Rev. Margaret Ruggles

On Sunday, April 28, 2019 we joyfully gathered to mark the call of Rev. Margaret Ruggles to Mt. Carmel-Zion United Church.  Jack Findlay was representative from Western Ontario Waterways Region and Rev. Meg Runhart was guest speaker, both part of the United Church community.  Also here to celebrate this call to a new ministry with Rev. Ruggles were her family members, colleagues, friends and members of the church community. We commit and celebrate how we are all part of the wider church together.
