NOMINATING COMMITTEE—Good Morning. My name is Deb Hornung and I am a member of the nominating committee for the coming year. On behalf of the committee, I would like you to prayerfully consider serving in the capacity of a deacon or elder in our church. Deacons are the caring arm of our church, and are the active ministry of sympathy, witness and service following the example of Jesus Christ. Elders are the governing body of our church, guiding its witness, and nurturing the covenant community of Christ's disciples, so that the congregation is and becomes a community of faith, hope, love and witness. If you feel led to serve as a deacon or elder in our church (or if you have any questions about serving) feel free to contact a member of the nominating committee or visit Pastor Bob. The members of the committee are: myself, Angie Allmer, Dixie Lee, Lynn Van Dyke, Gail Martin, Steve Reed and Ruth Barkus. Thank you.
