Min-Goo Kang, the minister at Ladysmith First United Church, will be ending his leadership of this congregation with the service Sunday, June 15.
His wife, Ha Na Park, formerly Supply Minister at Chemainus United Church, was ordained into the United Church of Canada at a ceremony during the final day of the B.C. Conference of the United Church of Canada meeting in Nanaimo May 25.
On Sunday, June 1 at 10:30 a.m., Min-Goo Kang and Ha Na Park will share in leading the service at Ladysmith First United Church. They will preside over the Communion Service together, and Ha Na will preach the sermon.
At 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 8, the Pentecost service will be a remembrance of the event when the Apostles and friends received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues that were understood by all the people and the foreigners listening.
The service on Sunday, June 15 will be in the Amphitheatre at Transfer Beach at 10:30 a.m.
This will be a joyful celebration of the gifts Min-Goo Kang has shared with the congregation during the four years he has been their minister.
In the case of rain, the service on June 15 will be at the church. Friends and visitors of Min-Goo and Ha Na and the congregation are welcome at all services.
Min-Goo Kang and Ha Na Park and their boys will take a travelling vacation to Winnipeg, where Ha Na has been called to a team ministry position at a church.
