Please prayerfully consider 4 persons to sit on the Deacon Body. You may place your nominations in the drop box provided until August 19th. A list of eligible members will be on the bulletin board outside Pastor Rudy’s office. Also on that board will be a copy of the relevant Bylaws explaining the process. However, we ask that you keep these very important characteristics required in our Bylaws in mind when selecting your nominees:
“The essential element needed is that of a godly character. Deacons must be willing to make the necessary time commitments to fulfill their responsibilities and must demonstrate support of the church. Only members who are at least 21 years of age and have belonged to the church for a period of one (1) year may serve as deacons.”
The Following exiting deacons are not eligible for nomination this year: Diana Buell, Curtis Foust, George Kelley, and Fred Simmons. We thank these deacons for their commendable service to BIBC.
