It was a boisterous weekend in Muskoka, Ontario, at least as far as Canadians can get boisterous. Muskoka Community Church (Ontario, Canada) celebrated two big milestones: ten years as a church, and the ordination of their pastor, Jeremy McClung.
Jeremy & April started MCC as a church plant, sponsored by the Southeast District of The Brethren Church in 2008. The church is now a full-fledged church in good standing, has taken residence in their own building, and continues to be a beacon of the Gospel to the surrounding community.
Numerous Brethren leaders traveled to visit our maple-flavored neighbors to the north, and join with them in celebrating God’s faithfulness at Muskoka. In all seriousness, Muskoka has beaten the odds, by God’s faithfulness and with the support of Brethren worldwide. Anecdotally, 80% of church plants are reported to fail. We rejoice in April & Jeremy's obedience and The Brethren Church’s support of their vision for Ontario.
