The Nominating Committee is prayerfully considering nominees for the church offices of ruling elder, deacon, and trustee. This is an important part of the life of our church, and we request that you participate by recommending individuals for our consideration. Some passages setting forth qualifications for church office are 1 Timothy 3: 1-13; 2 Timothy 2: 14-26; Titus 1: 7-9; 1 Peter 5: 1-3; and Ephesians 5: 2-21. Recommendations should be submitted as soon as possible to allow time for Committee review and the interview process. We seek your prayers for wisdom and discernment in our deliberations. Please obtain permission from the individual you wish to recommend before submitting his or her name to the Nominating Committee.
