It’s Time to Nominate New Deacons

deaconsIt’s time to nominate new deacons who will begin service in January 2016! We are asking you to nominate candidates from those in our congregation who demonstrate the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23).

Deacon ministry at Smoke Rise is a call to leadership and a call to service. Deacons serve not only in worship on Sundays, but by ministering to the homebound and those in the hospital, by sending cards and making calls to our church family and by reaching out to foster connections and serving our community. Deacons have a wonderful opportunity to help our church be and become all that God has created us to be. Please prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind particular men and women for this significant ministry in our church.

You may email names to the selection committee chair Roy Vreeland at
