March begins the election process for the Diaconate of First Baptist Church.  Throughout the month of March, church members are given the opportunity to nominate fellow members for the position of Deacon.  What qualities should we look for in a Deacon?
Please prayerfully consider candidates, ask for their consent, and pray for God's divine assistance in the election process.  Look for inserts in your bulletin starting March 1 to submit names of men or women for consideration of the Diaconate.
