Reminder About Deacon Nominations

by | Jun 22, 2011 | College & Career, JH & HS (Oasis)

Sylvania Family,

Just a reminder that deacon nominations are due by this Sunday, June 26th.

In What Areas Will Deacons Serve At Sylvania?

There are currently four areas in which deacons will serve (one man serving in one of the following area):

  • Facilities
  • Finance
  • Ordinances (i.e., baptism & the Lord’s Supper)
  • Visitation (i.e., widows, sick, elderly, etc.)

Do I Need To Specify The Area For Which I’m Nominating A Deacon?

No.  It is not necessary to specify the office for which you are nominating a man, although you are certainly free to do so.  The areas are listed primarily to help you consider who may best serve in these specific roles.

Who Can Submit A Deacon Nomination?

Any member of Sylvania Church.  There is no age requirement.

How Do I Submit A Deacon Nomination?

To nominate a deacon (you may nominate up to four):

  1. Please verify that the person you wish to nominate is willing to serve as a deacon were he to be selected.
  2. Submit your nomination by emailing Phillip Dancy.

Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing how God blesses Sylvania through this process and the resulting deacons,
