Collection of Food Items for AFAC on Sunday, February 18

RELC launched a search for its newly created position of Church Administrator on Monday, January 15th, when Pastor Harry signed a dozen letters to neighborhood churches, seeking candidates from among our local Christian community. Copies of the announcement can be found in the Narthex. The job announcement is being posted on several regional Job Listing sites.
The job announcement is currently posted on our RELC website at https://www.relcarlington.org/jobs.
Please reach out to any of your friends and neighbors who may qualify for the job and be interested in it. It would be wonderful if we could consider for the position persons that are already part of our local faith community and have a heart for the ministry.
You may know someone who would see the opportunities and benefits of working within that culture of Christian service. The position is paid and could be up to full time.
