of special members who will fill our upcoming Elder and Deacon positions.
If you know of a person who would be a great fit, we’d love for you to let us know below!
Thank you! – The Officer Nominating Committee
The Officer Nominating Committee will be working hard and prayerfully this month to put together a slate of officers to be elected at our Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 5. They appreciate the names you suggest for Elders and Deacons and invite you to visit our website to fill out a suggestion form. Red suggestion boxes are also in place in the narthex and church office reception area. The deadline for your input is Sunday morning, January 22.
Perhaps it would be helpful to have a brief description of the two offices we are seeking to fill. Elders are members who are actively involved in the life of the church, who support our mission with their time, talent, and resources, and who are willing to enlist others to serve on our ministry teams. Deacons are members who have a heart of compassion and who enjoy communicating care with geographical groups within the church. Many of our Deacons also assist in visiting our homebound members, as well as, helping new members find their niche within the church. Elders and Deacons serve a three-year term unless they are filling an unexpired term for someone else. All our officers should be persons who have demonstrated deep faith and positive attitudes, as well as a desire to serve.
Please be in prayer for the Committee and for those asked to lead. With continued gratitude for God’s grace, and for the ministry we are called to share, let us anticipate an exciting 2023!
