As I mentioned in Midweek Worship last week, the deacon selection process is going well. As laid out, the thirty day nomination window closed on Sunday, March 22. We are now in the “pray, vet, select” phase. The timeline is still on track so I anticipate we’ll bring the names of the two candidates to the congregation on Sunday, April 12, with a congregation vote scheduled for Sunday, April 26.
NEHBC is filled with worthy men. Our current need is only for two new deacons. I am so thankful for our current deacons and their earnest, sincere manner about the selection of our new deacons. Please continue to pray for the Holy Spirit to guide this process that His will may be done. We want the will of God alone.
