The Nominating Committee
Needs your Help!
The Nominating Committee is working on its task to identify members of the congregation to serve as elders (need 6) and deacons (need 8) for a 3-year term starting in 2023. We need your help in identifying those whom you feel we should consider for one of these ordained positions. We have created a card with a brief description of roles of elder and deacon, personal characteristics to consider, and lists of those currently in active service; those in the class of 2022 are completing their term this year. We ask that you take some time to think carefully about this and let us know, either using the card, talking to a member of the committee, or sending an email to Pat Garner. We also hope that if we ask you to serve that you give our request prayerful consideration. We look forward to hearing from you as we work to complete our task to bring a slate of candidates to the congregation for a vote in October.

The Board of Deacons
The office of Deacon, as set forth in scripture (Acts 6:1-6), is one of witness, wisdom, and service. Deacons play a vital service role in the both the day-to-day operation and spiritual life of the church. The Board of Deacons ministers the congregation in a variety of ways by: ushering and greeting, feeding others, serving communion, caring for the homebound, and planning fellowship events. If you are in need of Deacon care, or would be interested in becoming a Deacon, please contact Pastor Beth at email@example.com.
