Sharon Church Welcomes New Pastoral Family
Members, friends and families of the Sharon Church in Portland, Ore., welcomed their new pastor, Garth Dottin, and his family — Melainie, Brooke and Levi — to the great Pacific Northwest and into their new church family on Oct. 21, 2017. It was a day of thanksgiving, praise, prayer and love as the pastor and his family were presented with kind words, love and gifts.
Dottin and family moved to the Sharon Church family from Ontario, Canada, where they were members of the Kitchener-Waterloo Church.
Dottin hit the ground running. He has already conducted his first communion, chaired his first church business meeting, chaired several board meetings, gone on hikes sponsored by the health ministry team and visited members in the hospital. He led his first Portland Adventist Elementary School family worship near the end of October and held a baptism on Nov. 11.
The members of Sharon Church are quite pleased with Dottin and his dedication to the work in this part of the vineyard — and his family is plenty of icing on the cake.
We invite you to join us on any given Sabbath, any Wednesday night prayer meeting or any number of activities hosted at the church to hear this dynamic pastor preach the Word of God.
