New Sunday School Series – “Basecamp”

Our study on John 1-3 has come to an end. It was a good series, but I am really looking forward to the next several weeks. Over the course of the next few weeks (until promotion Sunday) we will be going through a study that I am calling “Basecamp.” The purpose of this study is to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to be active students of the Bible. We will define core theological ideas (i.e. sanctification, justification, etc.). Additionally, we will review the Baptist Faith and Message. We will also discuss some effective strategies students can implement to make their personal study of scripture more focused.

Deacon Selection – 2022

We will select 5 new deacons on Sunday morning, May 15. As set forth in our church bylaws, deacons are chosen from among the men of our church who are at least 21 years of age and have been a member of the church for at least one year. For the convenience of our church family, a list of men who meet this age and membership requirement is available in the vestibule. However, our church has higher qualifications for deacons than just age and membership requirements.

We require deacons to meet the biblical qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 and Acts 6:1-7. Generally, these qualifications require that a man demonstrate Godly character, doctrinal soundness, and the spiritual qualities necessary to provide effective leader- ship in his home and the church. He should also be faithful to the church in attendance, service, and giving.

Please keep these qualifications in mind as you prayerfully look through the list of men in our church. On Sunday morning, May 15, be prepared to vote for 5 men who meet these qualifications. Keep in mind that this is not a nomination process. The top five qualified men who agree to serve will be presented to the church on August 14 for confirmation.

The men whose names are listed below are currently serving as deacons. Those rotating off this year are ineligible for re-election for one year

Lynn Fisher
