This Sunday we have an opportunity to vote in affirmation of our Elders. Our elders are overseers. They pray fervently, guard against false doctrine and generally oversee all parts of the church. Voting about this may not seem like a very exciting thing to do, but it is an important part of our church. Each of these men desire to be in this leadership capacity and love the church enough to give the time and energy to lead it properly. 1 Timothy 3:1-4 tell us, “Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect.”
Please pray continually for Scott Armour, Jay Boso, Dennis Kimball, Wilson Muinamia, Kirk Olney, and Steve Rea. Pray for God’s guidance as they oversee our church body at Madison Christian Church.
