    Jim was the second minister of our congregation when our congregation was a mission and he was there through the building of our church. We were young with 3 little kids; he worked hard for us. What a great day when that congregation opened the doors of the new church.
    Then in 1993 we did an addition – another time of excitement. Jim spoke at our 50th anniversary and reminisced about times gone by.
    Calvin church Kitchener – member since before 1960, imagine.
