NOMINATION FOR AN ELDER
The Elders are presenting a nomination for eldership to the church members because we wish to maintain a full number of Spiritual leaders for our people.  After much discussion and prayer over a considerable period of time, our decision is to present Neville Greaney for this position, to be assisted by his wife Carolyn.

According to article three, section 6-10, of the Standing Orders, such nominees are to be presented to the church membership for not less than 28 days and during this time we ask you to put this before God in prayer.  If any of you then who may have an objection to this nomination, please contact the present Elders to present those objections or concerns.

After the 28 day period when any concerns have been dealt with, the appointment will be confirmed as per article 3 sections 7 & 8.

A copy of the Standing Orders concerning the election of Eldership will be placed on the notice board for your convenience so that you are able to become familiar with this process.

God's blessings to you all,

Fred King. (On behalf of the Elders.) (3rd announcement)

Pray for the Greaney's -----
Broken wrist, cut legs, hospital visits etc.
Pray for their protection as they place themselves on the altar for new ministry.
