Weekly Prayer Focus – Nominating Committee
Our church Nominating Committee works diligently each year to discern those whom God has equipped, prepared, and called to serve as our Elders and Deacons. This is the time of year when our congregation forwards the names of men and women for consideration. The committee then prayerfully seek to discern if those nominees have the appropriate spiritual maturity, gifts, passion, and sense of God’s call to fill each position before they are brought to the general congregation.
- Thanks to our God for the wonderful committed men and women on the Nominating Committee.
- For His guidance and direction as they consider the candidates.
- For those whom God is calling to open their hearts and minds and hear His voice calling them.
