Piper Ryan McKenzie and Pastor Pat

On Sunday, April 10, 2016 a joyful congregation gathered at Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church to celebrate the Installation of the Rev. Patrick Mecham as pastor.

The Installation Service began with the Administrative Commission processing into the sanctuary to the melody of “Amazing Grace,”played on the bagpipes by Ryan McKenzie, staff at Zephyr Point.   With prayers and praises, proclamation of the Word and promises to be faithful, the Presbytery of Nevada installed Rev. Mecham and shared in the joy of the congregation, who had waited over four years for an installed pastor.

It was wonderful to have several members of Nevada presbytery, as well as clergy guests from other denominations, present to join in wishing Pat and the Spanish Springs congregation a long and fruitful ministry together.  Following the Service the celebration continued as everyone enjoyed a lovely reception prepared by church members.

May God richly bless Pat and Melissa and the Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church!
