This Sunday we will have our end of the fiscal year Town Hall Meeting. This meeting will involve the membership of the church receiving and voting on the proposed budget for the new fiscal year, and we will also vote on two elder and two deacon nominees for the upcoming year.
The two men who have been nominated for church elder this year are Bill Scott and John Harbor.
He and his wife, Dena, have been a part of New Hope’s fellowship for many years. Bill has served as a deacon in the past and has also served one three year term as an elder.
He and his wife, Jan, have been a part of the New Hope fellowship for 8 years. John is actively involved in local mission opportunities and he has served on volunteer teams at New Hope. He is currently leading a Connect Group on ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ by Rick Warren.
We have two deacons up for nomination this year.
Calvin has faithfully served under current deacon Russ Bolton on the security team for over three years. As Russ rolls off the team this year for a sabbatical, Calvin has been nominated to take over the leadership responsibilities.
Mel and his wife, Jennifer, brought their family to New Hope several years ago. Mel has served on a couple of the volunteer teams at the church and has been a faithful attendee of the worship services and connect groups of New Hope. Mel has a heart for reaching people with the gospel of Jesus and we look forward to working with him on upcoming outreach events in the future.
We will need at least two-thirds of New Hope’s active members to be present for the Town Hall voting on Sunday so the vote will be official on both the budget and nominees. Please make plans to join us this Sunday so your vote can be counted.
