Deacon Election Today
This morning at the end of the Worship Service, we will conduct a Deacon Election according to the Church Bylaws. We hope that you have spent time this week praying and carefully considering the men who you believe that God would have serve and help edify this church. We provided the information in the blue insert to help with this process. Please remember: this is not a popularity contest.
We ask that you write on your ballot the names of up to five men who you believe should serve this church as deacons. If you so wish, you may provide less than five names, but please do not provide more than five names, disqualifying your ballot.
After the ballots are collected, a deacon committee will count the ballots and contact prospective nominees according to the Church Bylaws.
Thank you in advance for participating in this process.
Something to Consider
Words from our friend (on the other side of the world)
Can you imagine a day where every person you see, interact with, and speak with will spend eternity separated from the Father? That is what life is like here every day. My roommate and I were sitting in a crowded food court recently discussing this matter (and I’ll go ahead and admit that we were eating Arby’s; sometimes you just want some curly fries).
At times it can feel like an overwhelming burden. How do I tell everyone in time? I can’t. So what do we do about it? For me that answer is that I moved here, I pray and ask the Father to do what He alone can do, and I work really hard to learn the language.
What about you, will you spend time considering this matter? Will you ask the Father what He wants you to do about it and be listening as you pray, read His Word, and interact with fellow believers? – Leslie
