Nominations for elders and deacons are due this week. With that in mind, please be in prayer for those men whom the Lord has called to serve in the office of elder (“overseer,” 1 Timothy 3:1-7). Ask Him to give wisdom and discernment to us as a congregation and to the members of the nominations committee as we make nominations for this important church office. Likewise be in prayer for those men and/or women that the Lord has called to serve in the office of deacon (1 Timothy 3:8-13). Pray for those to be nominated that the Spirit would instill in them a desire to serve Christ and this church in a manner that displays the grace of Christ to His people and to the community of Lake Wales.
