Since assuming the position of Moderator, I have had the pleasure of chairing one meeting of the council, and officiating at the inductions of Kirby Smart (Waterville UBC) and Tim Bigelow (Woodville) and ordination of Debra Mosher
(Windsor Plains Baptist Church).
Special Events: An Ordination Service was held for Rev. Debra Mosher
in Windsor Plains United Baptist Church on Saturday, November 8, 2008 at 3:00PM.
A reception followed at Dykeland Lodge, Windsor, where Debra works as the chaplain.
We met with our chaplains, Rev. Debra Mosher
and Rev. Dr. Judith Saunders at Acadia Divinity College
in Wolfville to encourage and support in prayer and _ealize_n concern.
The Council of the association met in February and voted to increase the paid hours of work for Rev. Mosher at Dykeland from eight to eleven per week as of March, 2009.
It has been previously noted in our reports that the time she
spends in preparation and ministry consistently increased to significantly more than eight hours per week.
With the incoming interest from the Rev. Don Ehler Memorial Chaplaincy Fund and funding from the association, this increase in hours is possible.
We thank all who support in prayer, in giving, both financially and by attendance at the hymn sings the ongoing work to support chaplaincy at Dykeland; the vision and hard work is evident as the chaplaincy fund continues to grow.
We wrote a proposal in March, 2009 asking for help of Dykeland Lodge
to increase Debra's
paid hours from eleven to sixteen, giving her
two eight-hour days.
This proposal was agreed upon by Dykeland Lodge
and we thank the administration for this financial support.
will be paid by Dykeland Lodge
for five extra hours per week beginning May 4 th, 2009.
