November is Officer Nomination Month

November 2008

Do you know that November  is Officer Nomination Month? Do you also know that our congregation had an annual growth rate of 6% from 2004 to 2008? Praise God! In 2004, we had 36 deacons and deaconesses serving. Do you know how many deeks we have today? 34.
 
Redeemer needs more deeks and we need your help. As our church continues to grow, so does our need for new servant leaders. We will be accepting nominations for elder, deacon and deaconess during 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. 
 
As Redeemer’s mercy ministry, the deeks serve on the Diaconate and provide practical assistance to those in our congregation who are facing challenging situations (Acts 6:1-4 and 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 and Titus 1:6-9). 
 
You must be a member to nominate another member. You can submit a nomination online www.redeemer.com/nominations, download a nomination form from the website or pick up a form at any service at the information center. Fax completed nomination forms to Jenny Chang at (646) 572-0020 or mail it into the office at 1359 Broadway, 4th Fl, New York, NY 10018. You may also place nomination forms in the offering basket during any of the Sundays in November. The deadline for submitting nominations is November 30, 2008.
