Service of Recognition and Affirmation of Ordination: Rick Green

On Sunday May 19th at 3:00 PM, Central Woodward Christian Church will hold a Service of Recognition and Affirmation of the Rev. Rick Green’s ordination to Christian ministry. In this service CWCC will affirm the decision by the Commission on Ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Michigan to recognize Rick’s earlier ordination prior to coming to CWCC.

The Rev. Eugene James, our Regional Minister, will be present to lead in the liturgy of recognition. The sermon will be delivered by our pastor, Dr. Robert Cornwall. Also participating in the service will be representatives from the congregation, the region, and the broader church. The service will conclude with a service of communion. There will be a reception for Rick following the service.

CWCC is blessed to welcome Rick into the ministry of the Christian Church as well as at CWCC. With confirmation at the June 2 Congregational Meeting, Rick will join the staff of CWCC as Associate Minister without Portfolio. He will also be serving as the interim pastor during the fall sabbatical of Pastor Bob.

Please join us in this celebration, and in honoring the ministry and presence of Rick, Wes, and Richard.
