Recently our church family submitted names of men who they would like to see serve as deacons. After prayerful consideration, vetting, and discussion with several of those men, the deacons have agreed to unanimously nominate the five men below to begin serving as deacons for a three-year term beginning October 1, 2022.
On Sunday, September 25, we will convene a special called business meeting to ask the church to elect these men to serve as deacons. We will have paper ballots for those who are in the building. We will also provide an online ballot for those who wish to register their vote electronically. Thank you to everyone who participated in the process. We pray that as we continue to annoint men to this area of service that our church will experience the same results as indicated in Acts6:7 after the early church appointed their deacons.
And the word of God continues to increase, and the number of disciples multiplies greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.
