October is the month that we elect Deacons. Thank you for prayerfully considering who you believe would serve well as an At-Large Deacon for our congregation. Deacons of First Baptist are servant leaders. They are responsible for building relationships with the people of our church and provide them needed care. They should be trustworthy and maintain confidentiality. At-Large Deacons will visit when needed, serve communion to homebound members, and make connections with persons who are not members of one of our small groups. They are a vital link between the persons they serve, and the pastoral staff to ensure ministry is provided. Those nominated to serve as Deacon should be regularly engaged in worship, discipleship and missions of First Baptist. Deacons are elected for a two-year term.
