Deacon Nominations Underway

Deacon Nominations for the 2017 Deacon Council.

Nominations are due by Friday, September 2.

It is time at First Baptist Church Decatur to nominate and elect new deacons who will begin service in January 2017. During the period between Wednesday, August 17 and Friday, September 2, you are asked to nominate for deacon service those in our congregation who demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23), and who embody characteristics of servant leadership.
Please ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind particular men and women for this significant ministry in our church.
(As a reminder: Nominees must have been members of First Baptist Church Decatur for at least one year; Nominees from the same nuclear family may not serve at the same time.)
Nomination forms will be available in the church office and at worship services. Forms may be returned through your Sunday School class, through the offering in worship, or bring it to the church office during the week. You may also email your nomination(s) here.
