January 2022 | Officer Nomination Month

OFFICER NOMINATION AT SPC

At SPC we are governed by our elders and deacons. The opportunity to nominate those officers to stand for election is one of the privileges of church membership. Recent changes to our by-laws obliged us to move our officer nomination process forward.

1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 offer significant insight into the kinds of men who will be trustworthy elders and deacons. Please read these chapters in the Bible and this brief description of our nomination and election process. Then, if you know qualified men in the congregation whom you believe would serve the church well, nominate them on the nomination form below.

All nomination forms must be signed and delivered to the church office by January 31, 2022. To submit your nominations online, search for “nominations” at stonypointchurch.org.

MEN AND WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP AT SPC

We believe that all Christians are given gifts. All Christians are called to serve in the work of the Church, including in positions of every kind of ministry, pastoral care, and service. We also believe that, according to the Bible, God has called men and women to mutually beneficial but distinct roles in the home and in the church family. It is the position of our denomination that following the Biblical model, some men are set apart to lead the local church as a spiritual organization. These office bearers, as Calvin said, have been provided by Christ so that the true religion may be preserved. Practically, that means teaching, but it also means leading the local church with its spiritual and physical needs. These distinct roles are described in 1 Timothy 3:1-13. Thus, our elders and deacons are called to provide the oversight, guidance, and support for SPC’s Ministry and Mission Teams, which are led by both men and women.
