Officer Nominations 2023

2023 Nomination of Officers

Elders, Deacons & Trustees | Class of 2026

Nominations Due by Friday, January 27, 2023

The life of the congregation is enriched by the many different kinds of service that members offer. This represents an expression of Paul’s great picture of the church as the body of Christ, with each member contributing to the health of the whole. (I Corinthians 12)

Congregational leadership is one important area of service in the church. Each year, members of First Presbyterian Church are called by the congregation to exercise a ministry of leadership within the church as Elders, Deacons and Trustees. These are distinctive leadership roles, calling for particular gifts and commitment.

The offices of Deacon and Elder are part of the rich history of our Judeo-Christian heritage. Please read the scriptures listed below as you seek the leading of the Holy Spirit before completing the nomination form: 1 Timothy 3, 1 Timothy 5, 1 Peter 5, and Titus 1.

The Church Officer Nominating Committee is now seeking names to consider for nomination for service as Elders, Deacons, and Trustees. The Committee asks the congregation to suggest the names of persons who have been regular in worship, active in the life of FPC, generous in support of our ministry and faithful in their life and witness to the gospel.

The committee will meet and consider the persons suggested by the congregation together with the members who have served as officers in the past. The committee will exercise its collective judgment in deciding which members to nominate and present to the congregation for election.
