Friends of Woodland Baptist, please come and join us this Sunday night for a very special time in the life of our church as we ordain two men, Ben Hurt and Jonathan McCoy into the Deacon Ministry for Woodland Baptist Church.
We will begin the ordination service at 5:30pm, so that our “Meet Your Deacon” fellowship supper will not run too late into the evening. All ordained men are invited to come and lay hands on our newly examined and commissioned servants.
1 Timothy 3:8-13 – Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise mustbe dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
