“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” - 1 Peter 4:10
It is that time of year again! From now through August 31, nominations are being accepted from the congregation for the offices of Elder, Deacon, and next year's nominating team congregational representative at City of Refuge (COR). COR is hoping to have at least 3-4 new Deacons/Deaconesses and are praying for at least 2-3new Elders to be elected this year.
In obedience to scripture, the COR Elders exhort all congregational members to prayerfully and diligently pursue potential candidates for these offices. Also, if you are approached for nomination, we urge you to pray fervently on this opportunity to serve as an officer in God’s house on behalf of His people. Please view this call as a possible nudge from the Lord and allow your name to be submitted for consideration.
Finally, we recognize that when people come from many different church backgrounds, there is often confusion about church leadership roles. Please use this site to learn more about what it means to serve in these roles at COR.
