This morning, we voted unanimously in both services to select both recommended men as deacons. Praise the Lord for the provision of these two brothers to serve our congregation in this role.
The next step will be to ordain them as deacons; that is, a unique gathering of our church for a prayer time specifically to set them apart for this role. The ordination service will take place in Midweek Worship on Wednesday, May 13, 7-8pm.
Even if you aren’t a regular in Midweek Worship, I’d urge you to make special effort to be there for the ordination. It is a very special and spiritual moment in the life of a congregation. I’d also urge you to bring your children to see this. If you want them to grow up to be people of the church, then you need to have them present to witness and learn from key moments in the life of our church…this is one of them.
