Ephesians 4:

3 Committees & Deacons Committees are selected in early summer and approved annually at during our July Business Meeting. Committees are made up of 6 members with 2 members rotating off every year. They serve 3 year terms. Building & Grounds Long Range Planning Nominating Insurance Current Committees Personnel Stewardship Committee on Committees Missions Teams Overview Teams are small groups of people who share the common purpose of carrying out one specific ministry. Though all are unified around that ministry, the team members have varied Spiritual Gifts and complementary skills. At the leading of the Holy Spirit they form the action plans for the ministry and establish performance goals. Committees usually are groups that have meetings and make decisions that decide the actions of other people. In contrast, ministry teams are groups that actually perform ministry tasks and who have meetings for the purpose of planning their own work. Elkdale s Constitution and By-Laws call for a Deacon body made up of 15 men if available within the church, with a rotating system where each year one-third are elected to serve a three year term. Deacons shall be men in the church who will strive in personal morals and conduct to meet the qualifications of 1Timothy 3:8-13. They shall strive to follow in the tradition of service of the first seven deacons as recorded in Acts 6:1-7. Detailed qualifications are listed in Elkdale s Bylaws....we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:
