On Sunday July 10, 2011 the members of First Baptist Church LaBelle will have the opportunity to nominate two men to serve as Deacons. In our Morning Worship Service on July 10, 2011 ballots will be passed out to members to nominate two men.
This year we have three men who will rotate off as Deacons effective September 1, 2011, Bobby Holland, Frank Dana and Lonnie Howard.
The qualifications to be a Deacon according to our Constitution:
The Deacon shall be a male member of the church with an account of Godliness and fitness for the office. His moral qualifications require that he be a man serious in purpose, careful in speech, sound in doctrine, the husband of one wife, and a good steward of time and talent, must abstain from the use and sale of intoxicating beverages. Deacon's wives should so conduct themselves as expressed in 1 Timothy 3:11-12. A new Christian is ineligible for Deaconship for one year. A previously ordained Deacon in good standing must be a member of First Baptist Church of LaBelle for a period of three (3) months before becoming a eligible for Deaconship.
Please begin praying for the men you feel God would want you to nominate.
