This Year's Deacon Nominations

Each November, the church elects a new class of Deacons to serve the church as both leaders and ministers for a three-year term. The Church Constitution and By-Laws requires that the congregation nominate people for consideration to be placed on the ballot for election. The ballot will be constructed by the Deacon Nominating Committee from the nominations submitted. The process for Deacon Election is outlined in Section Four of the Church Constitution and By-Laws.

The list of members who have agreed to be considered for nomination this year or have not responded to remove their name from consideration is listed below. Please choose up to five (5) persons to nominate. Forms with more than five (5) submissions will be invalid. Please prayerfully consider the Qualifications for Deacons in making your nominations. We also encourage you to nominate a mix of members who have served before along with others who have not.The Church Constitution provides for one nomination submission per member.
