The church was blessed to get to know Nathan and Camilla Rice along with their two sons Nathaniel and Samuel. The family had an extended time of vacation in Ocala with several great opportunities to meet with many of our church members. Nathan preached on April 15th and then after the church potluck lunch, the Rice family drove back to their home in Garland, Texas. On April 22nd at the church special business meeting the vote was unanimous to call Nathan to be our new pastor. He has joyfully accepted the call.
Nathan, Camilla and the two boys are excited to announce that things are progressing rapidly to purchase a home in Ocala and to sell their house in Garland. They are very much looking forward to their move to Florida on the 1st of June. We all continue to praise the Lord for His provision and to pray the Lord will continue to bless us all during this time of transition.
Peter Magnuson, Chairman of the Elder Board.
