We rejoice with Diana Verhulst, who has been serving in ministry at Franklin Grove, as she will be officially licensed to the ministry in a service at the church on April 10. Congratulations also to Zech and Jen Houser of the Highland Avenue Church of the Brethren in Elgin; the Ministry Leadership Development Team recommended them for licensing earlier this month.

Blaine Miner, pastor at the Dixon congregation for the past five years, has announced his retirement effective June 30.

Christy Waltersdorff, pastor of the York Center congregation, is continuing to recover after suffering injuries from a bad fall on an icy sidewalk about six weeks ago. We pray for her and for the church leadership at York Center as they work to cover ministry needs in her absence.
