We are beginning the annual process of electing deacons. Men elected this year will serve for 3 years starting in January 2019.
The Deacon election will be by the church at large. The Deacon Ministry is a service ministry at heart. Is is an important ministry at Lynwood as this is how may families are ministered to during times of need. We encourage you prayerfully consider the men that you will nominate to serve as a deacon.
For the position of deacon, each man is asked to commit to a covenant, meet the biblical qualifications, and have been a resident member of Lynwood for one year.
If you Click Here, you will find a list of men who are ineligible for election due to the fact they are currently serving as deacons, or are ineligible due to their completion of 3 years of continuous service.
The Deacon Council recently added a step to the election process. The Chairman of Deacons each year will appoint 3 active deacons to serve as a nominating committee for the deacon election. All names from our church family will be submitted to that nominating committee. This committee will present a slate of names to be voted on by the church at large. Please click here to complete the nomination form. This form allows you to nominate up to 12 men. Each resident member should complete only one nomination form.
Nominations must be in by Sunday, October 14th. If you have any questions, please call the church office at 573-334-4600.
