The Church at Liberty Park
August 30—September 27
We have the wonderful opportunity as a church to choose a group of men to serve as deacons. With this opportunity comes the tremendous responsibility of making sure that the men who serve are called by God to do so and meet the biblical qualifications found in Acts 6:3 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
The by-laws state that men who are at least 21 years of age and who have been an active member of the church for at least one year are eligible to be nominated. A list of these men is available to help you in making your choices. Please contact the church office for these names at email@example.com. Please choose eight men from the list and use this form to submit your nominations.
Because the office of deacon is so vital to the health of the church, we urge you to make your choices not on the basis of popularity or any other superficial criteria, but rather on the basis of God’s guidance through prayer and Scripture. We ask, therefore, that you spend time praying diligently about your choices and examining the qualifications found in the two passages mentioned above.
Every individual who is a member of The Church at Liberty Park may submit a nomination form, and all church members are encouraged to participate in this process. Please complete the form online or come by the church office to fill one out. We will conclude the nomination process the last Sunday in September.
Thank you for participating in this important decision affecting the life of our church.
