Our council recently received a baptism request from a "long distance" member that attends a church in a nearby town (that believes in infant dedications instead of baptisms). Any advice?
My name is Bill Koehler. I've been a member of the CRC since 1985, two weeks before my wife and I married. We have been members of Covenant CRC in Woodstock since the early 90's. I currently serve as chair of our council, and my wife, Wanda, has been a GEMS counselor for the last few years. I work "part-time" for Canada Post, and also part time in a grocery store. We have two daughters: Sarah, 24, lives in London, Ont. and is a waitress/bartender. Caitlin, 21, works at the local Blockbuster video store, and is planning to marry next September.
Wondering if a church "opts out" of the Minister's Pension Plan, even temporarily, if it's possible to pick it up again in the future? Or is it a case of once you're out, you're out??
