Gold River United officially closed
February 18, 2017
On Friday, February 17, 2017 the Gold River United church books were handed over to be taken to BC Conference Archives.
Three Executive members went up to Gold River on behalf of Comox-Nanaimo Presbytery; the Rev Sally Bullas, Chair; Rev John Bullas, Faithful Public Witness Chair and Mimi Zuyderduyn, Secretary.
The weather cooperated and we had a beautiful drive through the mountains and lakes, God's handiwork was resplendent.
We enjoyed a fine lunch and conversation with two members: Heather and John, and the Revs. Freda & Gordon Rajotte (their last Ministers, now retired). After lunch we went to the church to collect the United Church records. Sally had prepared a poignant liturgy of closure...remembrance, gratitude, acknowledgment, prayer, and blessing. It was very moving for all in attendance.
