Every year the congregation votes on who should be the spiritual leaders on our behalf. This leadership team is oftentimes called the “council” and they are in charge of the day to day operations of Living Word.
The new council members will be “installed” (publicly commissioned) during the worship service on 2/4/18. You will hear their promise to faithfully carry out the duties assigned to them and will have a chance to show your support for them in prayer. We thank these Christian men who are willing to volunteer their time and effort to help this congregation function and grow.
All this is in line with the gifts given to different Christians as Paul talks about in Romans 12:
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.”
