Deacon Selection

Deacons serve as additional servants & leaders under the oversight of the eldership.

The elders are happy to place before you, the Memorial Road congregation, the following men for final consideration as Deacons. We believe they and their wives are godly people who will take this responsibility seriously. We ask you to pray and fast prior to their appointment. If there are any scriptural objections, those must be written, signed, and given to one of our elders by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4. The leaders thank the congregation for your input, support, and prayers in this process.

In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.
In the same way, the women (wives) are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.
A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 3:8-13
