Deacon Nomination Time Is Here. We would like to ask our church family to give prayerful consideration to the following:
1. To pray for our deacon/yokefellow ministries here at Myrtle Grove Baptist.
2. To pray for individuals within our fellowship that God may be calling out to serve as a deacon/yokefellow this coming church calendar year.
If the Lord puts someone on your heart that meets the scriptural qualifications in I Timothy chapter 3, we will provide an opportunity in the next few weeks for you to submit that person’s name for consideration.
