Recommendations Needed for Church Officers

Class of 2022

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send,and who will go for us?”  Then I said, “Here I am!  Send me.”  Isaiah 6:8

Is it you?  Is it your friend?  Serving as a church officer is a privilege.  Your recommendations of names of people you feel would be good representatives of First Presbyterian Church to serve as deacons or elders, Class of 2022, are needed.  Please complete the form below, and bring or mail it to the church office, or drop it in the collection plate by Sunday, June 16.  According to the Book of Order, individuals who undertake particular ministries, including ruling elder and deacon, should be persons of strong faith, dedicated discipleship and have love of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian Gospel in the church and in the world. (Book of Order, G-2.0101) All church officers must be active and pledging members for at least one year prior to election which occurs in October with terms beginning in February. 

Orientation classes will be held to prepare you to become a church officer.

The Board of Deacons ministers to those in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to any who may be in distress in accordance with the scriptural duties of the office. The office is one of compassion, witness and service after the example of Jesus.

Ruling elders, together with the ministers, constitute the Session. Session is responsible for the spiritual direction of the congregation and is the final authority in the decision making of the congregation. Elders also represent the congregation in the presbytery, synod and general assembly.
There is a recommendation form located in the bulletin. Please fill out and return to the church office by June 16.
