The elders feel that it will be good for the congregation if we appoint additional elders and deacons.
Last Sunday we asked that each member
provide us with a list of the men that they believe qualify for these positions. If you did not pick up one of the forms, please do so today.
Paul in his letter to Titus reminded him that he has left him in Crete that he might: “Set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city.”
Then he listed the qualifications for one to serve as an elder. (Titus 1:5-9) Paul in his letter to Timothy not only listed the qualifications for elders but also for deacons. (Titus 3:1-13) Please read these two passages to refresh your memory (printed inside for your convenience).
Additional men in leadership positions should be beneficial to all of us. We look forward to your input.
