Dear Church Family,
Elder Crawford asked me to inform you all that because of the holiday weekend we will continue to accept Deacon Recommenation Forms through Monday, 10 September.
Please be in prayer about these recommendations and seek out qualified men to ask them if they are willing to serve. As you consider those you would nominate, please ensure that you turn your form over and give a brief explanation of your reasons for the nominations you make.
Remember that the work of God's officers in the church is a vital and necessary part of Christian life and fellowship as they are his ministers and the under-shepherds of our souls. These recommendations are not only good for your own spiritual life, but for our entire congregation, and for the men who will enter into this high, holy, and spiritual calling.
Grace and peace be with you all.
