Dear Hope Family,
While both of these men were approved by our congregational vote in January, during the indoor worship service on Sunday morning, they will take vows to serve as Deacons in our midst, and we, the congregation, will also take vows both to receive their care and to nurture and support them in their work as servant leaders.
Nick and Shawn join a strong, compassionate, and active team of Deacons whose calling is to help our congregation grow in the grace of generosity and tangible acts of mercy.
Please pray for Nick and Shawn and their families, for the joy and solemnity of their vows, and for our church to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ under their leadership.
This is yet another sign of God’s faithfulness to build His Church and to advance the ministry of the gospel as far as the curse is found. Let’s praise and thank him for this kindness and grace!
Grace and peace,
