As I shared in our services this morning, the current deacons and I are unanimously recommending to the congregation that we select Elmer B. and Brett T. to serve as deacons.
Both brothers have the lives described in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Additionally, they and their wives have, through their Christlikeness, gained the spiritual respect of large numbers in our congregation. This is crucial because of the particular role deacons play in NEHBC. Of course, these men and their wives also live out all four of our membership expectations and have demonstrated great support of our vision.
We will again share the recommendation with our congregation this coming Sunday, April 19, and then we will vote on Sunday, April 26.
Please pray about these recommendations and our church family. May God’s will be done.
