The candidates presented to you have been nominated by the members of the church and trained, examined, and approved by the Session. We believe these men and women are well qualified to serve and find their character in accord with the description of a deacon in 1 Timothy 3. If you elect them into office, their primary role will be to continue to live out these qualities as they engage in acts of mercy and service in the church and our city. Their work will carry the weight of those called by God and ordained by the church. As members of the Diaconate, they will manage and serve the mercy ministries of the church. If you don’t know a deacon candidate very well, it’s perfectly reasonable to trust the wisdom of the Session and vote “yes.” However, if you have biblical reasons to believe that any of them are not fit for the office of deacon, it is your right and obligation to vote “no” for that candidate. You are also encouraged to make known any concerns you have to the Session.
