November is Nomination Month for Elders, Deacons and Deaconesses

November 2010

Are new elders and deeks needed? Yes! Our church is at a critical juncture in light of our plan to establish four generative congregations to move out into the city and serve. The needs in our congregation are numerous and have been in-creasing. As our church continues to grow, we need your help to identify new servant leaders. 
 
As Redeemer’s mercy ministry, the deacons and deaconesses serve on the Diaconate and provide practical assistance to those in our congregation who are facing challenging situations (Acts 6:1-4 & 1 Timothy 3:8-13). The elders serve on the Session and provide spiritual leadership to our congregation through oversight of Redeemer ministries, leaders and members (1 Timothy 3:1-7 & Titus 1:6-9). 
 
How can I nominate someone?
 
We are receiving nominations for the entire month of November. If you are a member, please start to prayerfully consider whether you or a fellow member you know, could serve as elder, deacon or deaconess.
