No, it's not something you receive at the doctor's office. That's called inoculation! Ordination is the act of setting someone apart to a form of leadership; in this case, the office of Deacon.
It's designed to be a special form of servant leadership in which the church recognizes God's selection of a person. New Deacons also are a positive sign of vitality and spiritual growth within a congregation.
Next Sunday, January 17, we will celebrate the ordination of six new Deacons with a special service at 5:00. You are invited to be a part, culminating with the "laying on of hands," done as a form of prayer.
Our first-time Deacons are:
Ryan Beckman Ryan Thomas
Ben Bolt Ed Yeash
Bob Poindexter Chris White
See You Here,
